On Saturday the 14th March I organised Biolumination II as part of thinkScience day at the 2015 Auckland Arts Festival. I challenged a group of artists and illustrators to each come up with a work of art using just a solution of harmless bioluminescent bacteria and a collection of 25 x 25 cm square petri-dishes. I want to introduce you to each of the artists and show off their amazing pieces.

Meet Hope Sutherland!

Hope is a young adult in a state of limbo between biology & the arts. Needless to say, she pounced eagerly at the idea of glowing bacterial paint.
