“ Time-poiesis｜N1 Cyanobacteria”
explores the motility of cyanobacterial
colonies observed under the microscope.
The bacterial populations are originally
organized as a 3D structure in water,
while they form motile nearly 2D
colonies on agar plates. Initially, we
recorded time-lapse images on agar
plates with a powerful and advanced
microscope in the laboratory.
Then, we converted a time-series of the
2D images into 3D data by laminating
each bacterial distribution across time
as the z-axis. Thus, the shortage of
dimensionality would be compensated
naturally by changing the temporal axis
to a special axis, to let “another” natural
