Este conjunto de animálculas (el término animálculo fue inventado por Anton Van Leeuwenhoek para referirse a los pequeños organismos o protozoarios que observó a través de su microscopio en 1674) y filacterias (cinta o pequeño rollo de papel que se usaba en el arte medieval como globo de texto) conforman una especie de manifestación–manifiesto de bichos que nos interpelan con diversas frases, la mayoría extraídas de dos libros centrales para entender la crisis ambiental actual: Staying with the trouble. Making Kin in the Chthulucene, de Donna Haraway y The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruins, de Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing.

This collection of animalcules (the term was invented by Antonie van Leeuwenhoek to refer to the small organisms or protozoa he observed through his microscope in 1674) and phylacteries (strips or small scrolls of paper that, in medieval art, made use of speech bubbles) to form a sort of manifestation-manifesto of microscopic organisms that speak to us using a variety of phrases, the majority taken from two books that are central to any understanding of the present environmental crisis: Staying with the Trouble. Making Kin in the Chthulucene, by Donna Haraway and The Mushroom at the End of the World: On the Possibility of Life in Capitalist Ruin, by Anna Lowenhaupt Tsing.
