  • Bacterial Motility


How can we translate scientific data into textile design representing a hybrid language in-between science and future designs?

My project confronts scientific data and methods with bio/e-textiles in order to find a balance between individual identity and single celled organisms. I have been fascinated by the growth, the movement and the shapes of the invisible membranes in nature especially the bacteria population. By doing so, I wanted to make invisible into visible to create a second layer on human body based on the interaction between the largest organism (Human) and the smallest one(Bacteria).
