Bacteriograph by Copfer
The Cringing Art Form of Developing Photos with Bacteria
Copfer’s method of photography, self-coined as Bacteriography, is similar to the common photo developing process with a few major exceptions. Rather than using light sensitive photographic paper and exposing it to light, the bio-artist uses genetically altered bacteria in a petri dish and exposes it to short-wavelength ultraviolet radiation. Once he’s satisfied with the bacterial growth (and, thus, the image), Copfer refrigerates the bacteriograph, does another radiation treatment to kill any microbes, and seals it with a layer of acrylic.
super cool science/art
