The project “Photographs Modified by Bacteria” contains themes of life, transformation, creativity and ends portraying a destructive process of obliteration.
Organic structures from bacteria taking over the emulsion of the film material. Detailed patterns created by the bacteria emerge until all the organic matter of the film is fully metabolised erasing the original image.
This process of decomposition is still not under control after testing and study for years. Chaos and randomization are the decisive factors.
