The active exploration of 15 million years of evolution under the eye of the Electron Microscope

Minutiae is a collaboration between Interdisciplinary Artist Catherine Watling and Micropalaeontologists Professor Paul Pearson and Dr. Helen Coxall from the School of Earth, Ocean and Planetary Sciences at Cardiff University. Their muse is the beautiful collection of single-celled microfossils foraminifera, whose intricate structures reveal hidden secrets of evolution and allude to the origins of complex life on earth.
