a microbial bathhouse
the microbial bathhouse explores a speculative spatialization of the co-healing practice. designed around a series of tools for safely exchanging microbes from our bodies, the bathhouse experiments with how microbial health can be experienced as a probiotic and collectivised practice of grooming. the space exists between a lab and a sauna, and features spaces for safely and somatically exchanging microbiota from the skin, mouth, lungs, and vagina.
