Microcosm is the first experiment in my visual journey exploring things into micro level, capturing the beauty of the ephemeral, the reality that we often overlook before they vanish in time. The surreal patterns created by the invisible forces of mother nature around us, somehow reminds of the same patterns from the bigger level. The first Microcosm film investigates a micro universe of magnetised field and fluidity, where choreographed magnet together with ferrofluid, demonstrate the inter-relation among cosmic things in an almost spiritual sense.
The idea of Macrocosm and microcosm is borrowed from an ancient Greek Neo-Platonic schema of seeing the same patterns reproduced in all levels of the cosmos, from the largest scale (macrocosm or universe-level) all the way down to the smallest scale (microcosm or sub-sub-atomic or even metaphysical-level). In the system the midpoint is Man, who summarizes the cosmos. (source : wikipedia)
