Un-tun


In awe of micro soil creatures, the gut system of our world without whom we would quite literally be 'in shit'; life would be unable to grow plants, which would end life on earth as we know it - our lives for sure. Wondering if it would be possible for people to start feeling a sense of connection with these creatures I am looking for Tardigrades, Nematodes and Rotifers under the microscope. These are tiny creatures (0.5mm), who have the magical ability to 'tun up'. They loose 95% of the liquid in their bodies and go into stasis. In this state they can live over 100 years, survive fire and the vacuum of outer space. When they find water they de-tun and come back to life. Wanting to see this and share it with others is a lot harder than I thought but that's the current project.
