Jelte Van Abbema

10 Aug

Whilst carrying out some research based on environmentally conscious textile manufacturing techniques I came across the slightly bizarre but very interesting work of Dutch designer, Jelte Van Abbema. The project which I am interested in is entitled ‘Symbiosis’. The project involved printing simple typography using bacteria as opposed to traditional printing inks. The idea is that the bacteria multiply, changing colour and form as they do so, before dying creating a temporary yet ever-changing work of art. Below are some images of the experimental work created by Jelte Van Abbema.
