Ereignis, Gelassenheit und Lichtung: A love story installation 2015 from Tarsh Bates on Vimeo.

This digital time-lapse video of Candida albicans reproducing and changing shape, taken on a live imaging microscope, fills the room, contaminating the architectural space (and any bodies within it) with animate images of Candida albicans cells. The title of this work “Ereignis, Gelassenheit und Lichtung: A love story installation 2015″ combines terms used by the philosopher Martin Heidegger, whose work redefined understandings of “being-in-the-world.”

Tarsh’s project SURFACE DYNAMICS OF ADHESION has also been revived as part of the Pets Friends Forever exhibit at the Deutsche Hygiene-Museum in Dresden. <3 the concept of living wallpaper
