on
 Humans and microbes have existed in close proximity to each other feeding on and off each other for millennia.  Fermentation enthusiast Zeenath Hasan follows on from the feminist philosopher Donna Haraway’s concept of ‘companion species’ to explore interspecies relationship between humans and microbes. Examining the changing human attitudes to bacterial colonies, Hasan disentangles microbial doings to make visible the interdependencies that make possible our microbiome.
