Maggie Kimmett: Microbes Meet the Digital World
Microbial ecosystems are one of the life forms that teeter on the edge of human comprehension. Although we can’t see it with our bare eyes, microbial ecosystems are a whole complex world as diverse as our own.
“Microbes Meet the Digital World” is an art installation that uses a variety of textile techniques to emulate the beauty of microbial ecosystems and the structures that they take on, especially in lichen form. I juxtapose this unseen beauty against the humanistic space to pose the thought that perspective is everything.
