As much as they look like it, these aren’t some exoplanets that have just been discovered. No, Marco Castelli‘s Micro Odyssey involves petri dishes awash in bacteria found in bank terminals, public buses and women’s bathrooms, photographed against pictures of the stars. Take, for example, the one above: it was taken in a women’s toilet late in the night. Man, what would the men’s toilet look like?
“It’s fantastic to let microorganisms meet stars,” Castelli says, and we agree with him.
