Magical Contamination: A Blog Documenting Art Painted with Bacteria on Petri Dishes

Fascinated with the fusion of art and science, Antoine Bridier-Nahmias started a Tumblr blog called "Magical Contamination", documenting his stunning bacteria creations on petri dishes. Antoine's experiments, which turns the serious nature of the subject into a purely aesthetic experience, explore our complex relationship with today’s biotechnological industry. Speaking about the project Antoine says, "I can tell you that in general those are molds (fungus), bacterias and yeasts.In order to know which organism is living on each plate one could perform some test (from the simple API gallery to the genome deep-sequencing) but my interest for now is only visual."
