A NEW PHYTOPIA by photographer/designer Rob Kesseler
In the tradition of making nature aesthetically accessible 
Scanning Electron Microscope Images seen through an artist’s eyes

Just as the original plant employs colour coded messages to attract an audience of insect collaborators; through artistic intervention and interpretation Rob Kesseler creates powerful symbols that carry many messages: markers with which we retain contact with the natural world.

1  Longitudinal section through a flower bud of Citrus hystrix. Kaffir lime

2  Calotis breviradiata, the short-rayed burr daisy [2.8mm long]

3  A completely dehydrated multiporate pollen grain (of Plantago lanceolata. the Ribwort Plantain), folded inwards like a deflated ball  [3000x].

4  Malva syvestris - Common Mallow [4800x - acetolysed].
