I Am Legion: microbiomic tissue

 

In the works here, the contents of my gut microbiota have been separated away from other faecal material by filtration in order to purify its bacteria. To reveal the bacteria the samples are staining using the Gram stain which  reveals the bacteria of my microbiome.  The works invite the observer to consider the human microbiome as a complex and integrated human body tissue. Each tiny speck is a bacterial cell and one of the multitudes that I share my body with.
