Wear your bacteria on your sleeve

Here’s a shout out to my fiber art roots. Plus a little dirty science.

Austrian designer Sonja Bäumel has created a design application called “(In)visible Membranes.” She imagines how the body–via its bacteria–can grow its own fibers appropriate to the environmental stimuli which is recognized and modified by the body ‘s temperature.

Bäumel is currently featured on the Ecouterre website. Also check out her own website (click on her name above); I really dig the clean white lab coat aesthetic–sterile minimalism at its best.

Rock it, sister.
