A testate amoeba of the genus Difflugia, which has started using microplastic fragments to build its test (shell). I chose a strong blue for the fragment in the center, because I wanted it to stand out as something noticeably different from the surroundings. Something you can't help looking at again and again. This is how many of us experience nature now; trying to appreciate its beauty, with our attention relentlessly drawn back to its destruction.
