I’ve just set up C-MOULD,  a unique collection and knowledge base, for microorganisms that have application within the arts. All of the microorganism featured in this blog, and many others are part of the collection. C-MOULD is now seeking an enthusiastic and committed co-curator.  Unfortunately we cannot pay you at the moment but you will be encouraged to seek funding for projects that use this unique collection, you will receive training, and will have complete access to this truly unique strain collection. Please apply or express an interest by commenting on this post.

The images above are of just some of the strains in the collection.

  1. Hello,
    I enjoyed looking around your site! I am an exhibit developer at the Exploratorium, a science museum in San Francisco. I have worked on several bacteria exhibits and have some pictures of them on my website: http://deniseking.org/projects/ The co- curator position sounds interesting – too bad we are so far away form each other. Cheers! DK

    • Thanks Denise. Yes shame about the distance although if you wanted persue any of my explorations in terms of Exploratorium projects, I’d be happy to advise.

      It’s a great shame that the UK doesn’t really have anything similar to the Exploratorium

      Best wishes

      Simon
