Gust of Gametes investigates plant and human reproduction and the power of the small or invisible. The closer we look at the natural world, space and meaning seem to expand, as we sift through layer upon infinite layer of detail. Viewing something close up challenges our preconceived notions and associations of that thing: delicate plants are as hairy as mammals; clouds are communities of bacteria, fungi and spores. Gust of Gametes explores symbiosis, the surprising similarities between different organisms and the integration of all life.
