My microbial second skin: Visualising the human as holobiont

Project Details


The project develops theory and methods for constructing visibilities of complex biosocial phenomena like microbiomes. Specifically, the project aims develop empirical imaginaries of a microbiome-inclusive human body, in collaboration between the natural sciences, social studies of science, and artists. The focus of empirical attention is the gut mucosal wall— a site of intense activity of host-microbiota cross-talk.

The project is funded by a Seminar Grant from the Centre for the Social Studies of Microbes, University of Helsinki.
