microbial mist tool
the microbial mist tool blurs the line between biomedicine and sauna culture, materialising a practice of co-healing in which bathers can experiment with microbiota transplant techniques. this alternative proposal to the design of microbiome-based therapeutics aims to shape a sensorial form of medicine that positions people as both caregivers and care receivers. the tool suggests collecting microbiota of the upper respiratory tract, and transplanting it into that of others to diversify the microbiome.
