Protozoa samples, handblown glass, cereal grass media, plexiglass, wood

Protozoa (Louis Pasteur) recreates an archival image of scientific experiments cultured by Louis Pasteur, known as "the father of microbiology." It explores the ways in which the study of epidemiology, microbes, and bacteria are entangled in the history of Western expansionism and empire-building. The protozoa cultured here are Amoeba, Paramecium, Euglena, Volvox, Stentor, and Spirostomum.
