”Showing the beauty of Bacteria”


You carry them with you every day, unwanted bacteria, at least that is how we think of them. But what if you could show the beauty of these perceived unseemly things? Joost Dankelman, fascinated by the under appreciated little things that nature has to offer took these bacteria and turned them into something beautiful in this project. He is exploring different aesthetically pleasing forms you can create by making use of different colors bacteria guides into different patters using a 3D printer. He makes use of fluids to partially control the shapes and forms of the bacteria, and creates new innovating ways to use the bacteria, while exploring the paths the bacteria naturally follows. The first steps are 2D creations, but he is researching to eventually build 3D forms.  This project eliminates the bad associations with bacteria and turns them into something beautiful.
