Imagine building a hollow cubic structure like the green one in the image at left.

Now imagine making a thorough inventory of all the visible living things–both plant, animal, and microbial–inhabiting or passing through that space.

That’s precisely what photographer David Liittschwager did in a project that has become popularly known as the “One Cubic Foot” project. For those of you who think and work in metric instead of English units, one cubic foot is slightly less than one-third of a cubic meter.
