Public Projection

The public video projection shown above Tent Gallery showed different types of microorganisms. The

microorganisms were enlarged to look like they were coming in and out of the building. This experience

demonstrated to the audience that ciliates, tardigrades, diatoms and other micro-organisms

live among us, even if they are invisible to the human eye. Tardigrades commonly called “water

bears” are able to live without water or food for long periods of time. Physically they look as if they

were from another planet. Enlarging them made the public less able to ignore them.
