March 17, 2016 at 5 Months Gallery in San Francisco.
Come marvel at the group politics within your kidneys!
Come pay your respects to the only living members of never-before-seen species!
The Menagerie of Emperor Rudolf II was famed throughout Europe for being the place to go to see living representatives of strange species. In homage to this, and in deference to the complications with bringing cheetahs to a gallery event, the Micromenagerie will focus on those creatures only observable through the microscope. In this whirlwind tour, we will explore some of the life that makes up the worlds around and within ourselves.
N.B. There will be a microscope set up to observe the antics of living waterbears. These creatures are devious, so we ask that you be on your guard and kindly refrain from feeding them, no matter how they may implore you.
Daniel Cohen is a post-doctoral researcher at Stanford where he develops ‘sheepdogs’ to control the behavior of the cells in our bodies. He is also a licensed proselytizer of waterbear awareness. If you want to know more or to see his work in action via a laboratory tour, don’t hesitate to contact him at email@example.com!
