“Bacterial War-Games”: before and after


I ran the first science and art workshop at the University of Surrey last week. These are “Bacterial War-games” from it. The participants make designs using pigmented bacteria and we then incubate these to allow the bacteria to move and interact. Before and after. Bacteria as co-authors in the designs. Reflects quorum sensing, swarming, chemotaxis, modes of motility and much much more.
