the Micropia zoo to see the invisible world of microbes

“This museum is about the invisible world,” says the museum's creator, Haig Balian. “Two thirds of the natural world on this planet is invisible. One way of making it more visible is to imagine that every human being carries almost two kilograms of micro-organisms and bacteria. Half of the oxygen that we use is made of bacteria, and when you know that you have 10 times more micro-organisms in your body than body cells then you realise that you are a part of that invisible world.”
