Microfloral Femunculus is an extension of Microbial Me, where Mellissa experimented with different types of agar, mixing some to see the colonies that would grow. This is the initial idea to make a large scale human figure of herself later in her career, she has used these small prototypes to create an idea of what the human body will look like on a larger scale but also being playful in her work to create the illusion of death in the position but the juxtaposition of life growing on the death pose.
This project is in collaboration with Professor Mark Clements & Dr Richard Harvey.
