Figure 6. Microbes are everywhere! Worship the all mighty microbe! Wallpaper and icons by Jessie Hedden. See Artists’ Statement in Supplemental Materials, below.
Three photographs of the art installation entitled Microbe Icons and Wallpaper. Two photos show colorful wooden pieces with microbes (fungi and lichens) painted on them hanging on the wall. The wall is covered with wallpaper that depicts various microorganisms. The wallpaper is in peach and aqua tones and has a repeating diamond-shaped pattern, evocative of 1950s home decor. A third photo shows a child excitedly pointing at the artwork and talking with a man; artists and members of the public are visible behind them in the gallery during the exhibit’s opening reception.
