The Big City

6 minutes | experimental documentary

Human activity appears to dominate our planet's urban spaces, but a closer look reveals that we share every corner of our busy cities with trillions of microorganisms. These microscopic investigations of downtown Vancouver reveal the blurry boundary between human society and the natural world. 

The Big City was shot using an iPhone SE.
