Microbes live around us and within us, and our interactions with them are a matter of life and death. But in regard to issues such as biodiversity, most people think about “charismatic megafauna” (elephants, lemurs, etc.). By making information about microbes available and accessible, and by inviting imaginative response to that information, Microbestiary hopes to show, in welcoming and memorable ways, that the bustling microbial world is populated by strange, beautiful, and charismatic species. Our Microbestiary website www.microbestiary.org, showcases the responses of professional artists to microbial information; with these two pieces, we invite the viewer to take part in our microbial adventure.
