Homo[+]/Homo 2, Phase 2

 

The human is not a singular organism; it is instead a complex community. Human intestines are home to a rich ecosystem made up of trillions of microorganisms, known as the microbiota or gut flora. This work illuminates the reciprocal relationship, as humans and their microbiota co-shape one another. 

The work was later exhibited at the Wassaic Summer Festival-- see documentation: Homo[+]/Homo 2, Phase 3.

The interspecies candy vending machine dispenses 3 flavors of candy: leek, garlic, and onion & kale. These vegetables are rich in inulin, a fiber that feeds that bacteria in our guts.
