About The Work

Mike and Doug Stern’s collaborative practice highlights the inherent transience and fragility of art, and of the photographic medium in particular. Often depicting organisms that undergo metamorphic transformation, they have recently devised an apparatus with a refrigerated flat plate that keeps snowflakes frozen until their unique forms can be captured through a microscopic lens. This body of work pays homage to “Snowflake” Bentley, the photographer whose experiments in photographic microscopy are responsible for our recognition that no two snowflakes are alike. “Simple and complex,” the artists write, “[snow crystals] are all the same and all are different, hexagonal crystals growing outward in branches from their six-sided molecule of H20.”
