She Looked at Her Father's Ashes With a Microscope and Saw the Universe

After her father's sudden death from cancer, artist Gabriela Fuchs needed to find a way to grapple with the loss. She took his ashes, looked at them under a high powered microscope and found exactly what she was looking for. 

Gabriela was at The Banff Centre for an independent artist's residency in 2014. She received funding for her residency through the National Fund for Culture and Arts (Fondo Nacional para la Cultura y las Artes, FONCA).
