ESMI researcher’s work on Molecular Music chosen for permanent exhibition at The Eden Project

Congratulations to ESMI researcher Linda Long who was interviewed by the BBC about her collaboration with an artist and composer to create a unique bacterial soundscape installation at The Eden Project. The installation is part of a new permanent biomedical  exhibition called “ Invisible You. The Human Microbiome”,  a collection of art work, installations and interactive pieces that aim to explore our relationship with the bacteria that colonise our bodies. 

Speaking about the installation, Linda said “This is an exciting  transdisciplinary project that brings together science, art and music  to engage the public  with  bacteria and molecular biology in a really new and inspiring way”.

The new permanent exhibition at The Eden Project opened on the 22nd of May 2015.
