HumanScapes

The HumanScapes series use a biological medium, microorganisms living in symbiosis with our own bodies, to deepen our understanding of reality through non-human agency. Fusing biomedia art and photography, this series creates an image of our bodily reality by using the biological potential of the film in contact with life itself: this way, I grow an image, rather than take a picture. As I let microorganisms from our microbiota "imprint" themselves on film and create images through their own action, I achieve a less anthropocentric point of view of our own materiality.

 

By presenting this revised view of the human self, I seek to engage people in the reality of the relationship we entertain with microorganisms. A relationship so deep, so intertwined, that it ultimately challenges what it really means to be human.
