Bacteria Dye Machine_01

Moving Pigment aims to scale up and automate the process of co-designing textile patterns with pigment- producing bacteria. It intends to make visible a reality that is usually hidden from sight, showing us the incredible beauty of this parallel microscopic world.

Challenging the established separation of human and non-human species can create meaningful innovation. Designing with and not against nature necessitates alternative practices and new instruments. The machine is designed to explore the process of bacteria dyeing through automation. It represents a case study for the prospective large-scale implementation of sustainable co-designing dye practices.
