Porphyra Tenera {1988}

Igor Imhoff (iliant0)

The Nobel Prize for chemistry in 1988 was attributed to the studies on the determination of the three-dimensional structure of a photosynthetic reaction center, which is the protein complex where light reactions occur in photosynthesis. The Porphyra Tenera is a red alga whose proteins were subject of these studies. The red fluorescence is the characteristic of these proteins. This little story is a strange photosynthesis, where a small body is saturated by the light of some media (movies, games, images, works of art), united by the year of realization. This succession of images becomes increasingly syncopated to dissolve the small body.
