Three Colonizations

These are by Poulomi Desai and are from Anna Dumitriu’s BioArt workshop taking place at Watermans Art Centre as as part of The Romantic Disease events.

Poulomi printed out these images placed them onto a microbiological kitchen agar that I developed a while ago (a medium that allows the growth of many microorganisms and which can be prepared simply from ingredients purchased at many supermarkets.

The images have been transformed, and colonized by,  life forms of real importance and hidden influence, that is the Earth’s microorganisms.

I find them quite disturbing and funny in equal measure.
