This short documentary follows artist and UNCW art professor Gene A. Felice II and The Algae Society on a large exhibition at the Cameron Art Museum in Wilmington, NC featuring unique artists and scientists. It was a multimedia and multidisciplinary creative collaboration that focused on artwork that uses and is inspired by algae.

"CONFLUENCE at the Cameron Art Museum showcases a variety of media formats, time & magnification scales, and creative approaches to being with algae as a multi-sensory art & science (media art & culture) experience. Including growing algal portraits in a Bio Art lab, VR worldmaking experiences, biodegradable 3D printed sculptures, immersive video & sound works, seaweed pressings, 19th century botanical illustrations, a floating island ecosystem, and more." - The Algae Society

Director Statement

The vision for the Confluence documentary came together when I got news of the exhibit and approached artist Gene A. Felice II about wanting to highlight his work with the Algae Society at Cameron Art Museum. I was fascinated by the exhibit and the bi-weekly art happening experiences tied to it. This turned into a 3 month long coverage that was incredibly deserving of having a documentary made about it.
