"Water Bodies"
Gregory Crocetti


Opening: Tuesday 8 November, 6-8pm
Dates: 8-26 November 2011

In 'Water Bodies', Gregory Crocetti has used ready-made, recycled plastics to re-imagine different species of phytoplankton. From the Greek word for ‘wandering plants’, phytoplankton are microscopic organisms that populate the world’s oceans. Most of the oil that humans use was produced inside these tiny, intricate bodies, millions of years ago. Through the process of photosynthesis, hydrocarbons are created, forming the chemical elements that with pressure, heat and time, become crude oil. The use of recycled plastics, also derived from petrochemicals originally produced by phytoplankton, connects these microorganisms back to their source.

Gregory Crocetti is an artist whose methodologies and interests have been shaped by a background in science and ecology. Formally trained as a microbiologist rather than an artist, Gregory’s practice explores ways in which scientific content can be conveyed in artistic contexts. He is a founding member of Scale Free Network (SFN), a Melbourne-based collective of scientists and artists who create interactive installations and workshop-based residencies, viewed in scientific, artistic and public settings. Water Bodies is Gregory’s first solo show.
