our collective fabric

// the microbiome

(2019 - Ongoing) 15mm bacterial dishes, agar, cotton swabs, paper with instructions, and people


our collective fabric // the microbiome is a collaboration between biologist Sara Fresard, microbiologist Kelly Eckenrode, researcher Sophio Kirimlishvili, undergraduate researcher Jessica Das, artist Floor Grootenhuis and the public. The piece is an invitation to grow and experience our own microbiome and share understanding of its importance for our physical, mental and collective health. This creative process delves into how we as community and society are interconnected and interdependent through the invisible fabric of our microbes.
