C-MOULD: at home

Freezer

This is the home of C-MOULD, the world’s largest collection of microorganisms for use in the arts. Over 50 different kinds of different kinds of micorganism are cryopreserved behind this thick insulated door. Their activity and potential stilled for now at -80 C, but ready to be awakened from their icey sleep for the purposes of art, to make for example gold, nanowires, light and biofabrics.
