Crypto Pietà

 

With Crypto Pietà the artist is trying to explore the never-ending cycle of life. There is neither creation nor destruction; there is merely a change of form. 

In this artwork, the Michelangelo masterpiece La Pietà is covered with lichens and mould growing all over the surface, forming a new ecosystem.

Zooming close enough into the image, a new perspective is revealed; the white lichens gradually become flowers and leaves and hidden messages appear on the surface. 

Lichens are considered pioneer species, the first to colonize barren environments that have been disrupted, such as by volcanic eruptions or fire helping to break down the rocks into the soil for plants to start growing again. 

It’s a message of hope. Life will always find a new way to grow through evolution and adaptation. 

The artwork has a massive resolution of 14000×14000 pixels generated by using the computational power of a network of 36 computer nodes.
