It all Began with this Piece
Dr. Kristin Baldwin was given this piece for her birthday. I made it by laying down threads in thick blankets of glue, and was exploring things two lines might do without touching. And it got her thinking... and next thing I know, she had proposed creating a living paint -- a strain of bacteria that she modified to turn blue when it comes in contact with another chemical -- a chemical I can paint with on petri dishes.
