This digital collage includes over 15 overlapping layers of photographs, colours, patterns and textures.
Some of the layers include reconstructions of Islamic filigree and geometric designs, photographs of coral, and kaleidoscopic imagery. This tile features a prominent Islamic design centred within a layered border.
Coral reef habitats represent some of the most dense and varied ecosystems on Earth. Though they cover only 0.2 percent of the oceans floor, scientists estimate that nearly one million species of fish, invertebrates, and algae can be found in and around the worlds reefs.
While reef habitats appear to be robust enough to withstand almost anything, they are extremely fragile are a sensitive bioindicator of environmental changes. Not only are most corals brittle, but they usually need pristine, clear, warm, relatively nutrient-free waters to survive. Over the past 50 years, humans have put an enormous amount of pressure on coral reef environments by altering their waters and tearing up their foundations. From dynamite fishing to global warming, we are rapidly sending the worlds reefs into oblivion. According to the Status of Coral Reefs of the World: 2008, 19 percent of the world’s reefs are effectively lost, 15 percent are seriously threatened with loss in the next 10-20 years, and 20 percent are under threat of loss in the next 20-40 years – suggesting a mass extinction event.
