In the coherence of my research trajectory, scrutinizing the visible, I now explore the micro-plant world and its infinite putrescence phenomena. I create "plant negatives" from floral material deposited between two glass plates. With time, a new life emerges and these microorganisms thus become the main actors of an organic image being made. In a process of perpetual mutation, they break down shapes and suggest colors that mingle with the secret of a dance. Vibrant energy constantly expanding as the universe, it reminds us of the fabulous organization of the material of the galaxy to the living cell. I glimpse in my garden, the secret of life ... "macrocosmic" images of everything that answers in the universe, mirrored in the infinitely small. I discover a cosmic order, a trajectory of particles that seems to join that of galaxies, as if the flower contained all the cosmos.
