Candida albicans is a yeast, one species of the hundreds that thrive in the ecologies of the human body. We have co- evolved; Homo sapiens provides myriad ecological niches for C. albicans. This interdisciplinary project combines scientific experimentation, art-making, evolutionary ecology and queer theory to posit the human body as a queer ecology. The sexuality, performativity and community of C. albicans within this ecology are explored through science, art and evolutionary and queer theories. Three aspects of queerness, i.e., sexuality, gender, and kinship, are woven through three aspects of evolutionary theory, i.e., sexual, natural and kin selection, to form heterotopic alliances.
