     A visual representation of gastric bacterium whose delicate balance is so easily disrupted by the addition of ingested sugar.  The artificiality of the exploited materials - plastics and processed sugars - contrasts the organic. A multi-phased process of  creating floral lace - initially made dimensional with porcelain, then digitally flattened into a simplistic silhouette - further represents the replacement of the natural with the synthetic.
