Modernism Gallery: Microbial Associates - Jonathon Keats.
Comment by AB: Conceptual artist and experimental philosopher Jonathan Keats, in a pseudo-scientific fervor, is now training that far-too-underexploited commodity-- bacteria-- to work at all corporate levels, classifications and job descriptions. For as little as $10 per week, you can hire countless millions of qualified infinitesimal employees to bloat your company's bottom line. Profit margins never looked so good.
