My former marine biology teacher and friend, Michele Hoffman Trotter, is filming a documentary on microorganisms found in the ocean. She interviewed me for the documentary as an artist who finds inspiration in ocean life. My glass sculpture "Pteropod: Limacina helicina" is featured in the documentary as it is based on a real-life microorganism. The filming started this year so it won't be available for a while, but you can follow the progress of the film and check out a trailer and more information at www.microcosmfilm.com.
In the meantime, come support the film at our fundraiser: Microcosm: An Evening of Art & Inquiry. Thursday, Oct. 17, 2013 at Columbia College of Chicago, 618 S. Michigan Ave., 2nd floor. There will be a raffle with amazing prizes, a silent art auction and speakers about the film. Come grab a bite to eat and have a cocktail on us while you support the film!
