BioTextile Designs

These were some experiments that I did a while ago with Kate Goldsworthy who is part of the TED group at Chelsea College of Art and Design. They are designs made using the living red pigmented bacteria Serratia marscens and the biolouminescent bacterium Photobacterium phosphoreum, and a very cool laser cutter! The laser kills the bacteria where they are in contact with its beam and this can be used to make some very fine designs.
