The researcher and teacher in aesthetics and visual artwork was put together after a series of questions and experiments, starting from science and questioning if plants could feel, several wanderings between the greens of her hometown Sousse, a visit to her father’s laboratory to the final microscopic images. Experimenting with analog and digital microscopes, the projections created by Dora Hichri for INTERFERENCE Young Master Tunis 2022 on Petri-dishes simulate windows from a plane, a ship, or a submarine. The 3d circular shape of the petri-dish reveals a newly illuminated world, where plants’ particles move in harmony with invisible music. As if staring from above, the projections seem like fields of greenery, a flowery field, or a bushy one, another could be a crop, or whatever your imagination could lead you to. Each of these leaves speaks of a world of its own, it’s like they scream to the viewer “We are not only different from the outside, we hold universes within us. We sense”. Hanging from the walls of Kichlet El Attarine, Dora’s work will keep you wondering and imagining.
