PERSONAL REASONS TO ATTENDING THE COURSE
As an architect and a product designer, the scale with I interact in my everyday life is a macro scale, that is based in KM for urbanistic projects, M for building, CM and MM for product design. The scale of the microbiology world is something that I have always find fascinating, but sadly since the school, I haven't had the opportunity to interact with it. This course offers me the opportunity to reconnect with this world, to learn from it, experiment and the opportunity to see it through different lenses. I hope that at the end of this course I will be able to understand what experimental microbiology is and see if this subject has a connection to my previous knowledge.
- Create a series of photographies of a variety of specimens out and under the microscope. The specimens will come from laboratory allowed specimens.
- Does it exist any relation (symbiosis, parasitism,...) between Aliivibrio Fischeri (bioluminescence bacteria that normally can be found in the tropical warm salt water of the oceans) and Physarum Polycephalum (yellow fungi that live in the forest grows in dark relatively warm environments)? if it is, in which area can it be applied? Which applications could it have in architecture, design or other fields?
