Lets talk about siphonophores
As part of the exhibition Siphonophora by Thomas Glassford


In direct reference to siphonophores, planktonic organism colonial and marine, whose peculiar morphology is ambivalent between the animal and the plant, the artist Thomas Glassford presents a sculptural body that recalls the former use of the Museo Universitario del Chopo architecture, when it was the National history museum period (1913-1963).


To refer to siphonophores, especially those species that live in Mexico, specialist i the field Rebeca Gasca, will give a talk.
