Looking Through a Microscope
By Ben Medansky
Previously shown at The American Museum of Ceramic Art, "Looking Through a Microscope" is inspired from the Medansky's grandfather's autobiography in which he describes being a lab technician during World War II and hearing that they just discover the double helix of DNA. It made the artist imagine what it would look like to peer through a microscope onto a petri dish and see something totally new. The piece is made of terracotta and left raw and unglazed.
