the artist Materials- microorganisms,etc. microscope, slides, marking dyes.
Photography/video. Perhaps arranging microorganisms in artistic ways
would be useful for stills. Moving/reforming performing paramecia (where
they move around'live') that create artistic designs would be good too.
This project seems like an uncreative way to mine the virtual world for
creative ideas. You gain a lot from our input in good faith. Your artist
pals can rip off our good faith postings for ideas that they can use,
claim as original, and cash in on. Good luck.
the art Art Alive in A Petri Dish - in petri dishes and sandwiched
between glass, the bIOarTIST makes art with protists and paramecium
and amoeba and viruses and bacteria, etc. all under a microscope. Some
are photographed and those pics aree blown up poster sized. Some 'art'
slides, properly dyed for diagnostic markings are seen by direct video
by cameras hooked up to the microscopes.
The 'artist' might just be a geneticallly engineered, 'smart virus'
capable of maipulating other micro beasts. Or the artist might be a
virologist/cellbiologist with a lot of free time.
the beret If a viral artist- a rakish speck of dust for a hat. If a human
artist-a paramecium shaped hat.
