As Above, So Below
In As Above, So Below, a Nacreous mother of pearl cloud formation has been filtered through a prism lens. This shows the optical effect that the cloud has on the landscape. Seen in the upper atmosphere, it reflects a rainbow of light across the earth as it disintegrates the ozone above. The ancient hermetic proverb, ‘As above, so below’ in the title of the work alludes to how its presence will have a lasting impact on the environment below in months and years to come. Visible radiating in the winter polar stratosphere at altitudes of 15,000 – 25,000 meters, these clouds increase ozone destruction and are proven to be implicated in the formation of Ozone holes.
Through continued atmospheric observation and research, we will be able to make informed decisions that access our collective will as a species towards co-creating a sustainable super ecology with our environment.
