All living things are connected by smaller living things that enable life to thrive.

For my petri dish submission, I chose to focus on the interconnection between humans and the natural world through the sharing of bacteria in my ‘microcosm’ of the world. I named the piece Breathe, to highlight the importance of microbes/bacteria in sustaining life on our planet. In the painting, a figurative form shows the complex internals of the human body inhabited by bacteria, fuelling the functions of the body. The bacteria cells are released from lungs into the open atmosphere. These microbes then transfigure and morph into the natural environment affecting water, soil, and plants.

All fundamental materials and elements that humans depend upon to thrive are affected by the magical strength of bacteria.
