Hunter Cole – Artist and Geneticist

Cole grows the bacteria in a liquid culture, and then uses the culture as her paint, applying it to a gelatinous augur in a petri dish, as if the augur were a canvas.

For the two weeks following the culture’s application, as the bacteria grows and dies, the drawing changes.
