Microbial We: Bacterial Self Portraits

How much of our identity is predestined by our DNA, and how much of our behavior is influenced by the the constellation of microorganisms that reside in, on, and around us?  

This project is a re-imagining of the representation in self portraiture.

This project is in progress.  Please revisit, or leave me a note to be notified when this project is updated!
