We began with a deep dive into the scientific literature, researching all of the known associations between changes to the microbiome and disease. We contacted experts in rheumatoid arthritis, gene sequencing and bioinformatics, cancer, autism, nutrition and obesity, and more. We thought carefully about how to visually depict organisms and processes that cannot be seen with the human eye.
Behind the Scenes
We also developed a video vignette taking viewers behind the scenes of the creative process with body artist Trina Merry.
