On May bank holiday weekend, we brought our fly-tastic Mutant Circus to the beautiful Eden Project – an educational centre nestled in a huge crater on England’s rugged southwestern tip. We unleashed human-sized mutant fruit flies to rove around the massive biomes through the largest rainforest in captivity, and presented talks, workshops and discos hosted by our resident fly scientist and DJ.

Our four mutated flies – the gloriously named Fruitless, Yuri Gagarin, Antennapedia and Groucho – buzzed around this wonderful Cornwall destination and celebrated the opening of a new exhibition called Invisible Worlds – exploring the interconnectedness of life and the environment at every scale, and revealing how life is shaped by invisible systems. The flies revealed mutants in all their weird and wonderful forms, uncovering the scientific legacy of these fascinating freaks of nature.

Find out more about the Eden Project and their new Invisible Worlds gallery.
