Artists Juneau Projects collaborated with students from Elmlea Primary School, St Mary Redcliffe Primary School and Frome Vale Academy to sculpt, draw and cut-out a collaborative moss habitat that will fill Arnolfini’s second floor gallery, exploring this microscopic world and the creatures that live there.

Moss grows all around us, in the country and in the city, on buildings, trees, rocks, paving slabs and many more places. It’s one of the earliest lifeforms to have colonised land. Inside a clump of moss, no matter how tiny, lives a whole world of microscopic creatures such as the tardigrade, a tiny creature with eight legs that can survive the toughest condition.
