Oxford, Museum of the History of Science. Anna Dumitriu. BioArt and Bacteria
 

The exhibition by Anna Dumitriu explores our relationship with the microbial world, antibiotics and technology. Bacteria lie at the centre of Dumitriu’s ground-breaking work, which combines traditional artistic media with contemporary science to produce artwork that is not only about bacteria but actually fused with them.  The exhibition plots an artistic journey from the sanatorium movement to the arrival of antibiotics, as well as exploring newer innovations in science such as whole genome sequencing, the microbiome, and the field of synthetic biology.
