Time poiesis


 “ 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

form emerge.
