The Microscopic Opera installation makes minuscule organisms visible and gives each one its own sound. It’s a marvelous example of an exciting collaboration between science, design and art. The work allows the viewer/listener to enter the living environment of microscopic worms. Munnik renders the invisible visible and poses questions about how we engage with the natural world and about our position as human beings.
