Momento mori would be both a reminder and a warning for the devasting impact of bacterial diseases. In developed countries today, many of these illnesses are controlled by the use of antibiotic treatments and vaccination programs. However, these diseases still cause death on a massive scale in the developing world, and as antibiotic, and now vaccination resistant strains emerge, perhaps they will do so again in our modern cities. Momento mori will be a garment where each of the beautiful and coloured designs is actually made from an infamously pathogenic bacterium. The first design is this rose, made from Mycobacterium species, bacteria that cause tuberculosis and leprosy.
