Nguyen's work draws upon the imagery of nature, the sciences, and the cosmos but it is not limited to a conventional reading of these realms. It imagines that the depths of the ocean reach into outer space, that through an organic prism, vision can fluctuate between the micro- and macroscopic. Nguyen's practice is devoted to the natural world and its curiosities. It has been her inspiration and a place that she finds meditative and complex but also mysterious. It has allowed her to continuously know more about the world we live in. Nguyen been drawn to 19th century Naturalists like Ernst Haeckel: biologist, philosopher, physician and artist; John Muir: writer, conservationist and advocate of the preservation of the wilderness and Anna Atkins: botanist and photographer.
Visible Invisible will be on display in the front window of Pacific Court and will be viewable 24 hours a day for the run of the exhibit.
