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

The nostalgia of childhood combined with the mothering of materials in relation to my own relationship with my mother.
I was really interested in the materiality of the bacterial cellulose that we worked with, particularly in the ways it interacted with light and it’s versatility. I made a series of objects intended to be suncatchers, interactive with natural and bright light. I tried sculpting forms, embroidering, and watercolor painting and layering.
This project is a simple exploration in the cultivating bacterial cellulose for use an artistic medium. The finished project is a light-hearted commentary on unsustainable nature of air travel. All of the materials used in this project are renewable and biodegradable.
