Osmosis Films

The Edge of Wonder

Research into the human microbiome is exploding as scientists discover an ever-larger number of correlations between the populations of microorganisms that live inside us, and a wide range of diseases. We wanted to make a film that would provide an inspiring introduction to this new field that would be broadly accessible and visually stunning, without sacrificing scientific accuracy.

Artistic Approach

We began with a deep dive into the scientific literature, researching all of the known associations between changes to the microbiome and disease. We contacted experts in rheumatoid arthritis, gene sequencing and bioinformatics, cancer, autism, nutrition and obesity, and more. We thought carefully about how to visually depict organisms and processes that cannot be seen with the human eye.

Behind the Scenes

We also developed a video vignette taking viewers behind the scenes of the creative process with body artist Trina Merry.

Astoundingly beautiful!
