Through photosynthesis these tiny creatures produce 40% of the oxygen we breath, bioluminescence (turquoise light at night), red tide, and nutrients for coral reefs.

Dinoflagellates, is my most recent piece for the Balance and Imbalance art show, a nature inspired art project that I have exhibited up and down the east coast. Each piece from this multi-media collection is accompanied by a scientifically researched story.
