A World in One Cubic Foot: Portraits of Biodiversity
Aired On: Nov 7, 2013
David Littschwager discusses his book project A World in One Cubic Foot: Portraits of Biodiversity. This project began with a question: How much life exists in just one cubic foot? The imagined cube became a frame made of stainless steel rod that could travel and be set up in a variety of environments. Liittschwager's goal was to photograph, as precisely and faithfully as possible, every creature that lived in or passed through the cube.
