Annihilation has been dazzling audiences with its exploration of the Shimmer, a world inside our own where life... has found a way.

One artist looks to have been channeling that otherworldly shimmer for awhile now, using petri dishes.

The series “Petrified Rainbow” from artist Josie Lewis uses resin and chemicals to create strange and colourful growths inside petri dishes.

Lewis said that every single piece is a gamble: She basically throws some ink and resin onto a dish, seals it up, flips it over, and then waits to see the result.

“I can’t actually see what’s happening while making them.

I only get to see the results 12 hours later when the cure is complete and I pull the discs out of the molds,” Lewis said.
