Painting with Fluorescent Bacteria - Group 2

Session Leaders: Ellen Jorgensen

Tags: #bio art #bacteria #biohacking

Created By: Ellen Jorgensen

Have you ever made art with living pigments? Discover how to partner with micro organisms to create pieces that are alive. In this workshop we will create collaborative works using non-harmful bacteria that produce colored and vivid fluorescent pigments. You will learn how to culture the organisms and also how to display the works, including the UV lights needed to properly visualize the fluorescence.

I really really want to take this class, but time conflict! Would it be possible to start this class from 8 or 8:30? T_T
