Bacterium/Homo 2-18, Phase 2

In New Zealand customs, my shoes were taken from my suitcase and cleaned by airport personnel. During a residency program at Whitecliffe College, I continued to use my shoe soles as vessels for transfer and bacterial mapping.

Special thanks to Michelle Whitecliffe, Noel Ivanoff, and the Whitecliffe College of Art and Design.

The microscopic bacteria began to colonize, becoming visible to the unaided eye. Within days the panels were covered with patterns and colors of different types of bacteria.
