MICROBIAL HABITATS FLEFF 2015 Opening night Concert

The world of microbial habitats invites us to see beauty in the tiny structures that surround us, that are, literally, beneath our feet. Seeing high resolution electron microscopy of cells, time lapses of fungi living out their entire fruiting cycles, and 3d modeling at the nanoscale, invites us to re-interpret all the Habitats that surround and share every niche of our living world.

Imagery from Cornell’s Boyce Thompson Institute for Plant Research, David O. Watkins Jr., and Cornell’s Plant Pathology Herbarium augments this classical music concert featuring 2 grand pianos, percussion, horns, violin, flute, a dancer and a soprano performing the works of Bizet, Maslanka and Ravel.
