The bacteria we work with produce beautiful pigments!

We enjoy playing in the fertile ground between art and science by using our bacterial strains to produce living images and bio-based paint.

We have developed Bioart experiments to introduce groups underrepresented in the sciences to the fundamental beauty of chemistry and biology. We currently collaborate with MAST (school children from underrepresented backgrounds) and the Center for Creative Works (adults with learning and developmental disabilities) to spread the joy of scientific inquiry.
