By experimenting with different materials and techniques, he creates original shapes and structures. In his “Clouds and Powder” series, the materials are unpredictable. Marcel says this is what appeals to him most — being surprised by the ingredients he works with.

One of Marcel’s many challenges is capturing moments in photography that can’t be see by the naked eye. His education in chemical engineering didn’t all go to waste, he says. Marcel applies his technical knowledge to his art.
