BATRACHOSPERMUM

Series of graphics embroidered in fabric inspired by a family of freshwater red algae with beaded appearance, varying from blue-green, olive, violet, gray to brownish. It contains a uniaxial central axis with large cylindrical cells; four to six pericentral cells produce repeatedly branched fascicles of limited growth. I discovered these little creatures looking at a science book at home. The beauty of the shapes amazed me, as well as the function they have in ecosystems and the almost mathematical rules that define their bodies.
