You’ll need a microscope, but this time it’s not about science. No. This is about art, and more specifically Marie Cohydon’s art. The artist creates graphite pieces, using this originally scientific object. And the reason is quite simple: her creations measure between 1 and 3 mm. “the details are imperceptible to the naked eye; you will need a magnifying glass X5 or jeweler’s loupe X8 to X10 to appreciate them.” she explains. For Marie, graphite, which she works with meticulously, is a material that is “beautiful and shines brightly when polished”. The tools she uses to make her pieces are self-designed, making the process even more impressive.
