Pretty Little Things is part of Melbourne's Metro Tunnel Creative Program - a program that is dedicated to enhancing city life alongside the construction of the Metro Tunnel - a major development to our existing underground train system.
Tiny cells, a cluster of embryos, organisms multiplying this is the unique view seen through the researcher's lens, a beautiful breathtaking view that is often not seen by
