Organically composing microbial art

The objective of this research is to experiment with organically composing the growth structures of several molds and bacterias in a petri dish with the intent of creating a visually appealing array of living textures, shapes, and colors that will be photographically documented. Through the cultivation of these organisms, the outcome of my research will be to reveal the connection between what mankind considers 'fine art' and biology.
