Microbial Masterpieces: Meet the Microbes in this Zoom webinar.

The recipient of the Experiments in Translation Grant, “Microbial Masterpieces” is a continuously evolving project aiming to communicate the importance of microorganisms to humanity and the planet. Our featured attraction is a giant Winogradsky Panel in the Duderstadt Center Gallery, which houses a brightly colored, continuously changing biofilm. In this presentation, we will share beautiful images and time lapses of the Winogradsky Panel; discuss the science underlying the Panel; and reflect on the importance of art in science communication. Additionally, we will share our progress in trying to make our project accessible to the blind and visually-impaired community through tactile and audio experiences.

The MM team includes: Erica Gardner (School for Environment and Sustainability; College of Engineering); Anna Urso (School for Environment and Sustainability); Bruna lunes Sanches (Taubman College of Architecture + Urban Planning)
