Artist's description:

Unique photographic enlargement of cultivated Lichen colony.

This project makes the most out of a void in my knowledge of music theory. In acceptance of my own mediocrity as a musician I have turned to microbiology: by inoculating and documenting the different growth patterns of Yeast, E. coli and Lichen via a large format enlarger (treating the Petri-dishes as photographic negatives). A bespoke grid system is then placed above a petri dish or a select microbial colony, enabling the transcription of growth patterns onto fully chromatic punch card strips to be fed into a mechanical music device such as a grinder organ or music box.
