Micro Empire

Micro Empire …moving on from Macro Kingdom, we pass through the portal of a microscope to venture into the Micro Empire … surrounding us … inhabiting us …

Stranger than fiction… molecular conflict and mitochondrial warfare … a heartstopping, subcellular epic … a truly microcinematic experience …

“as an enthusiast for little things, I wanted to go deeper than the macro universe, so I found myself hanging on the eyepiece of a microscope. The real challenge was definitely the small depth of field in microscopy. It’s really fascinating how detailed this tiny world is.”” (Vimeo)

Interesting use of photography and motion in this video by Clemens Wirth & Radium Audio. Filmed almost like a horror movie, it shows the weirdness of the small. I’ve seen many images like this down a microscope, and it’s fascinating to watch these creatures move in real time. The way Clemens has edited it together is rather cool. Onwards!
