Gentleman Scientist: Microecologies presents an alter ego developed by Jennifer Willet as an entertaining and gender fluid critique of the Western tradition of scientific rationality. He is a ringmaster, a time traveler, a buffoon, whose once white coat is filthy and has 8 snow globes filled with microorganisms attached. The scientist’s coat is presented in an installation format.
