Abstract Ten Percent Human

This artistic research project focuses on current bio-scientific breakthroughs: the Human Microbiome, the related shift from Genomics to Metagenomics and the subsequent evolving perception of what our body is made of. If 90 percent of cells that constitute our body are not human but bacterial, how do we have to re-imagine the human and where could this new knowledge lead?
