Researcher: Nathalie Dubois-Calero, PhD Molecular Biology, and current Concordia BFA student
Project scope: “I climbed stairs alone, and thousands of microbes were falling from me, telling where I have been, speaking about my shoes, my food, my hair. I captured those spies on a fabric soaked with a nutritious and malicious broth, and I obliged them to show their faces. They were lovable in fact, and we worked all together — they still spy… but for whom?”
This research is ongoing, first presented as part of a class project for Drawing 399/499 with François Morelli. Dubois Calero’s works are bridges between art and science, and question our relation to micro-organisms, artificial and natural, human nature. She works mainly with found objects and living organisms.
