Event description
Microbial Space is a design drama that will take us on a microbial journey through the Reading Room at the Wellcome Collection.

About this Event

The design uses the Reading Room as a portal into the microscopic world, where we will embark on a collaborative, performative tour across biospheres hidden in plain sight. We will meet bacteria and talk to them in order to understand how we can better host them, in exchange for their support of human life. Through the many different stories read by voices in the audience, we will uncover links between how we design, furnish and inhabit spaces - directly engaging the health of the microbiome within. We will encounter the incessant buzz of the biosphere and hear from microbes, cleaners and regulators. Together, we will make jumps across scale and species to hear the many perspectives within this more-than-human world.

The Reading Room is on level 2 of the Wellcome Collection.
