These beautiful bacteria lights are works of art conceived by designer Ian Klingler. The pieces are created by carefully choosing the bacteria and the nourishment they receive. In controlled conditions, they are grown and then the process is halted. Users are then able to shine a light through them, growing them in wonderfully shaped containers, transforming it into abstract works of art.
Klingler shares, "We all consist of 10 times more bacteria than human cells. Every living being and place has its own unique and personal microbiological fingerprint. In a crossover between science, art, and industrial design, the bacteria lamp uses this fact to create stand out conversational pieces."
Future versions of these can be made using a client's bacteria, meaning the artwork is a reflection of that person.
