A showcase of the flora and fauna of the human body, grown by Gavin Humphreys and Joe Latimer.
For our Glastonbury zoo,
Joe grew 20 different individual species of bacteria. This time, they took swabs from various body parts – the eye, ear, and (of course) bum – and grew wee assemblages of species on plates. Joe drew them from his very own body. “This time it’s personal.”
Part of the Wellcome Trust’s gorgeously grimy Dirt season of events.
