Michele Hoffman Trotter, Professor of Marine Science and Sustainability, Columbia College Chicago, Roosevelt University, and The School of The Art Institute of Chicago

There is a hidden, alien universe in the ocean and it is the foundation of life as we know it; generating the air we breathe, purveyor of deadly toxins, medicines that may save a loved one, and fuel that might someday power our homes. Most life in the ocean starts out impossibly small, unseen without the aid of a microscope. In this presentation complete with Michele’s award-winning and stunning photography, viewers become acquainted with the dazzling residents of the microscopic universe in the ocean, find out why they are important, and learn about ways they might help solve some of our most pressing environmental challenges in the 21st century. Microcosm will soon be a full-length documentary or TV series.
