Faber Futures | Experiment no. 3: Fold

About this project

Through a deliberate resistance to deviate from the standardisation of a petri dish, origami-like folds allow a whole scarf to fit within the confines of a 150 mm diameter vessel. The results are an array of stunning mirrored prints that morph and shift as pigment secreted by bacteria diffuses through layers of inoculated silk habotai. Long after the peak of microbial activity is reached, a fine silk palimpsest serves as a record of what it was to live, then die, in 7 days.
