Adriana Ramić's work takes the form of multiple prints on fabric of agar e coli terrain traversed by the sole surviving descendants of the Columbia shuttle crash; C. elegans worm
The shuttle had about 60 scientific experiments on board, with a number involving animals, including insects, spiders, fish, bees and silk worms.

Finding the origins of life in a drying puddle
Flies and people were just variations on a theme of how to build a body that was laid down in some worm-like creature in the Cambrian period.

Translation from A to B
Is C a byproduct, noise, leftover or does it contain some essence of communication? Any change of structure and context transforms into new content (duh). It is a protestant assumption that form and content can be separated anyway.
