Simon Park - Microbial Art

Microbiologist Dr. Simon Park presents four unique series of images created with fluorescent bacteria and slime molds.

Microcosmos - Close-up images of bacterial colonies were used in an installation called Microcosmos,  a collaboration between Simon Parks, the composer Mitlon Mermikides, BBC cameraman Steve Downer, and culturist Pattie Hendrie.

The soundscape for the installation was derived directly from the colour and shape of the colonies, and the DNA sequences of each individual bacteria species (Simon Park, 2012).
