Microscopic Opera
2011

The installation shows a microscopic view of five C. elegans colonies; a tiny nematode, less than a millimetre in length. The first creature to have its entire genome sequenced, and moving as elegant as its name suggests.

In the installation the movement of the creatures, affected by various mutations, are translated into synthetic voices. The result is a stochastic opera across different magnitudes of scale.
