In their latest project they introduce natural textile dying with living microorganisms. By subjecting pigment-producing bacteria to sound frequencies Living Colour investigates the possibilities of growing bacteria in patterns. The study takes inspiration from cymatic phenomena like Chladni figures and Faraday waves, which cause matter to take form in geometrical patterns when subjected to sound.
