Success! After 18 hours in the incubator, our bacteria designs emerged in a beautiful range of blues and effects. The students/scientists/artists had mixed both transformed and normal bacteria together to create subtle combinations of blue and white designs... and many strong blue images were grown and printed today. Bravo! See how it all came together after the jump...
After we printed all the work, and mounted them in petri dish frames, each student contributed 3-5 of their prints to an installation of their work. Here we are composing that piece -- and then velcro-ing our prints into place.
A huge thanks to Ileana Rios of the Harlem DNA Lab, Summer Ash of the World Science Festival, and Mr. Patton from the Thurgood Marshall Academy for making this experience possible.
