Jeg er mangfoldig (2020)

Video. Duration 11:40 min. 

“Jeg er mangfoldig” shows bacteria and fungi that are cultivated from samples of my body. These cultures are sampled from fingers, toes, ears, inside the mouth,the anus, etc .. Half of the human body consists of microbes, so-called non-human organisms. Research now shows that bacteria can to some extent affect what we think and feel. In an occidental worldview, humans imagine that they are independent and separate from other life in nature. But bacteria challenge these concepts by showing that we are not individuals, but collectives inhabited by millions of organisms. There are several consciousnesses inhabiting a body.
