A basket made out of pieced bacterial cellulose, naturally dyed with indigo, logwood, pokeberry, and cutch: a basket to hold the remnants of a lifecycle, to become a placeholder for time, to honor the gathering of information, to pay respect to process, to give back to the the soil we came from.
Try to inflate a cellulose and use an arduino and a heart rate sensor to control the inflating action. By controlling different inflation and deflation time, the cellulose can simulate the sensation of breathing and heartbeat.
Continuing from my bacterial print under the same image and title, I was interested in how to carry these conversations into the realm of folk craft and culture. To do so, I decided to experiment with turmeric anthotypes with the bacterial cellulose.
I have always had a special connection with ‘skin’ (I’m not referring specifically to skin here, but any object that creates a sense of envelopment). I take pleasure in observing how skin can be contorted, stretched, lifted, and imprinted. I am drawn to the states brought about by the tension of force and matter pulling out of the skin. It is an invisible yet seemingly tangible force, a state that allows me to feel two completely opposite and even contradictory sensations at the same time.

This piece is conceptually rooted in my current thesis practice of making holes and exploring tranparencies.
Using bacterial cellulose, cotton twine, and natural dye to mimic decaying skin.
The piece consists of bacterial cellulose, grown from G.hansenii cells, with an image in cyanotype and formed onto a baby doll. It’s a memorial, both thinking about the children and babies in Gaza and also the children who have been impacted by floodwater.

By using symbols that have been found in art since the days of cave painting and materials that have to some degree existed long before the modern day, my piece attempts to make connections with the artisans of the past
A hat grown with bacterial cellulose, and dyed using Jacquard MX dye.
A mycelium milk jug, and a sculptural interaction between mycelium and metal.

An imagined lab grown wet specimen.
For this project I was thinking about our cultural relationship to death and decay. I wanted to create a headstone made from mycelium to make a less permanent marker for graves that decays with time. This was also an experiment to try to form text with mycelium. This project did not work the way I initially imagined and I demolded it too early due to time constraints.
The nostalgia of childhood combined with the mothering of materials in relation to my own relationship with my mother.
