New research around the concept of the “microgenderome” seems to highlight that women’s and men’s microbiomes differ because of the interaction of gut bacteria with sexual hormones.
Eveology imagines a future where women use DIY microbiology to boost their immune system and capabilities based on their gender.

a natural set-up
The Eveology incubator is attached to an Apple tree.
a natural cycle
The apple grows inside the incubator. When the apple arrives at maturity, you can detach it.
a natural ritual
Peel off the skin using the Eveology peeler and proceed with eating.
why eveology ?
women are underrepresented in human medical trials which means that some of the medication available on the market is not always an adequate treatment. Women seem to be more susceptible to immune diseases which could be linked to an interaction with the gut microbiota?
Inspired by the myth of Eve and Adam, Eveology researches a future where women cultivate food to produce specific bacterial strains beneficial for their health.
Food is medicine and in the future we might grow our medicine directly on crops. The rise of DIY science also means that we could have a positive both on our food intake and health.
The Eveology bioreactor incubates the apple to enable it to grow with selected microorganisms.
This exhibition is about our bodies, about our bacterias, about symbiosis with the living. This exhibition is about questioning our technology-centered idea of progress and the commoditization of our bodies.
This is what speculative is all about : creating new imaginaries for a "world of tomorrow" yet to come.
imprudence's residency program
Imprudence is a speculative design studio. This critical discipline is under-represented in France. This is why we decided to create our own residency program, aimed at young designers willing to invent the world of tomorrow.
Marion Lasserre (1993) is a speculative designer and futures researcher, based between Paris and London. Through her work, she creates speculative narratives, installations, machines and objects that explore the invisible links between the human body, technology, science, myths and popular culture. A recent graduate of the MA Material Futures at Central Saint Martins in London and of Parsons the New School for Design in New York. Her work has been exhibited at the Design Museum London, Milan and Dutch Design Week.
