Cinematic instrument based on feedback between my seed mixed with microbes (living in in local water reservoir), flower and voice-music performance. USB microscope will generate details of movement inside of view area and those digits will be injected into the PureData software, and next transformed into sound. Plants electric field will be mesured by the analog digital converter in laptop and also transformed into sound. Both impulses will be used to control the specific functions of the image like effects. On the stage the music performance artist will connect his human voice with output of the music created by the seed and microbes movement and we can hear the same what can “hear” the microbes because sound will be transformed into electromagnetic waves and these impulses influencing the microscope observed field will influence also microbes. We let the microbes to feel the same music not only through the sound as air vibration but we will stimulate the dance of the small life forms by the electric field, visible on the screen. Music will become the universal language of the affective communication between the species. Communication between so different lifeforms like humans and for example amoeba.




The goal of the project is the creation of a new strain of Lactobacillus delbrueckii subsp. bulgaricus GFP, and the mosquito species Aedes vexans GFP. The idea behind the project is to present a visual arts ways in which the dividing line between life which we are not aware of, and which we believe to be useful and refer to him with affection even though we destroy it by its consumption, and between the life that we do not like, or even sometimes afraid when the intensity takes us a sense of control over. The coexistence of a variety of biological species awakens emotions and they become the subject of this work. It has aleo its artistic dimension. We can imagine a beautiful view of the backwater mosquitoes that glow like fireflies. Of course, it helps us defend against them and it is a declared anthropocentric nature of this work, however, which is based on the awareness of biota. Both yoghurt bacteria and mosquitoes will be transformed into a new life form homegenizowanego.
