In this two-part workshop at Triga Creative in Toronto, Joel Ong and I lead participants in considering the microbial umwelt (or worldview) through creative approaches to interacting, swabbing and plating the relationships that we have with each other and the environmental microbiome. Making use of the petri dish as canvas, as skin and as stage for the generation of living, biological artworks as a baseline activity for mixing science and art (Hauser 2008). This workshop also leads participants in blending artistic and narrative modes to form scripts, scores or instructions for further performative gestures.
