Life in the Field of Death 3, The Methane Eater

The Methane Eater – Life in the Field of Death – Methylocapsa acidiphila
Methylocapsa acidiphila is a microrganism living in the acid conditions of peat bogs and burning methane for energy. Methane is a lethal greenhouse gas, so this organism helps to regulate the presence of this gas. The work is part of an ongoing series of gene sequence works about life forms living in places which are hostile to life. –  peat on paper – 126 x 100 cm
