Are you an artist/illustrator who wants to try something different? Or do you know anyone who is?
I’m looking for 8-10 people to join me for a very special project as part of this year’s thinkScience day being held during the Auckland Arts Festival and White Night. They will need to be free and in Auckland on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th of March and not be a germaphobe….
The challenge: to create a 1 metre x 1 metre art piece.
The catch? The ink is actually a solution of bacteria and the ‘canvas’ a collection of petri-dishes.
The bacteria the artists will be using is not dangerous, and naturally glows in the dark. This means that wherever the artists draw/paint onto the petri-dishes, the bacteria will grow. And when they do, they will glow a beautiful blueish colour in the dark.
Interested? Get in touch!
Here’s a time-lapse of a ‘drawing’ Rebecca Klee and I made:
