Biogenic Designs: white nascence

This is an example from a series of works featuring purely biogenic designs, which explore the inherent creativity and properties of microorganisms. This white design on black cotton is entirely natural, and is made from billions of normally invisible microbiological spores.  In their present context, the spores are dormant, but still potent with unrealised microbiological life. If, however, the design is provided with water and nutrition, then the spores will germinate and it will then become animated with an intricate three dimensional matrix of microbial growth. No longer nascent, the design will only then have realised its full potential.
