Microcosmos - Luke Jerram

A series of glass and inflatable sculptures by internationally renowned installation artist Luke Jerram, exploring the critical role played by an almost infinite forest of invisible phytoplankton in our oceans in absorbing CO2 and thereby regulating the Earth’s climate. 

Luke has worked with Professor Matt Johnson and PhD students Jodie Armand and Emily Harrison.

The aim of the sculpture is to provoke wider understanding of the important roles played by these invisible heroes and the wider issues around understanding climate change and its impact on our planet.

On display during the BioFest Discovery Nights
