Details

Jody Guralnick explores the intersection of science and art, bringing to light the microscopic and often unnoticed structures of lichens, mushrooms, molds and more.


For Guralnick, these tiny organisms are comparable to the first words of the earth—building blocks for nature's language. Her works seek to make visible the links between the human world and the realm of fungi and microbes, encouraging stewardship of the environment by highlighting the spaces that we share with microorganisms.
