GUT LOVE: You Are My Future

October 12, 2017

Join us for an opening reception of GUT LOVE: You Are My Future on October 12, 2017 from 5 - 7:30 p.m. at the Esther Klein Gallery. 

 

GUT LOVE: You Are My Future is an ongoing investigation exploring our human condition through the lens of our gut micro biome.

 

We are made up of more than just our human cells, as we have millions of bacteria and fungi in and on our systems. How do these  ecologies of the body coexist? How are we evolving together? What do we share with others – even if it is taboo? Looking at  research in fecal microbial transplants and gut biomes to better understand the important function of bacteria in our bodies, this  project embraces metaphors of interspecies love, immunology and bacteria as players. Is our gut a “hackable space?” As a patient  with Crohn’s disease, High’s interest in gut microbiota started with her own diseased body.
