Description
In this online exhibition, artist Sonja Bäumel, collaborating with Helen Blackwell of the UW-Madison Department of Chemistry, explores the perception of what bodies are made of through microbes. Bäumel reimagines skin as a fictional layer of communication, a landscape linked to the discovery of the human microbiome, establishing the body as a biotope. Through the works in this exhibition, Bäumel examine how scientific knowledge has influenced the way we perceive and and interpret the human body.
