Marie Polakova & Veselina Dashinova
Micro Pets is an artwork that plays with the contemporary concept of pet, bringing it into a microscopic landscape. The work of Marie Polakova and Veselina Dashinova is built on the overturning of the idea that microscopic organisms are useful for scientists yet dangerous for humans.
Humanizing something that cannot be seen as such, the two artists propose a playful relation between humans and microorganisms, creating nanometric toys and other accessories. To be seen, of course, through the lenses of a microscope.
