How Spacious a Glass Test Tube Can Be?

Amsterdam-based artist Rosa de Jong tries to figure out how spacious a glass tube can be in her recent project “Micro Matter” where she used the scientific instruments as container to house some impossibly small buildings, trees, and other inhabitable structures.
