Performance with Microbiome (2020)

A nutrient rich agar and tomato juice solution was poured and set in the shape of an adult human head. The head was then handled by the artist (touched, coughed on, licked) so as to inoculate it with bacterial and fungal colonies present in and on his body. It was grown in a sterile and temperature controlled grow chamber to allow for colonization, and was then removed, photographed, and used in a sound performance entitled, Performance with Microbiome (2020).
