Petri Dish Paintings

Professor Eshel Ben-Jacob from Tel Aviv University photographs the patterns made by bacteria growing on petri dishes.

Ben-Jacob’s Web site features a gallery of microbial art. He writes:

While the colors and shading are artistic additions, the image templates are actual colonies of tens of billions of these microorganisms. The colony structures form as adaptive responses to laboratory-imposed stresses that mimic hostile environments faced in nature.
