Observations on Bacilus Typhosus in its Filterable State
was originally downloaded from and manipulated in Photoshop CS2.

The unsharp mask filter was applied. Attributes Amount, Radius, and Threshold were applied at

maximum outputs each. The image was then flipped horizontally and vertically to create a cascading

visual effect. I used Google to find out that there are discrepancies in who actually

invented the microscope. One source offered Royal Raymond Rife, Ph.D. as the inventor of the

“Rife microscope, an instrument combining very high magnification with coordinated

resolving power.” I reuse this image in Burroughs-like cut-up form, retaining the crude use of

digital child scissors to create the collage effect depicting Rife in all his grainy Depression-era

scientific glory. He is given a modernization, a visual trope, and graced with a futuristic looking

pair of Oakley sunglasses to issue in his newly mediated stature of a founding scholar in the newly

developing field of Nano-imaging.
