Bacteriograms   Erno Erik Raitanen inspiration

Erno-Erik Raitanen, a Finnish artist created these Bacteriograms (love that word) by cultivating his own bacteria samples on a colour negative film. As Raitanen explains “The bacterium destroys the film surface producing photographic images that are created by chance. The artist is removed from the process but, still at the same time, they are a product of the artist’s body.”
