Space Bacteria

Space Bacteria
A collaborative work with Raphael Kim, looking at the possibilities that may emerge from advances in technology from two different environments: the Earth and the outer space. Based on the idea of transferring natural resources that are found on earth to an alternative environment, in the hope to gaining valuable outcomes, Space Bacteria proposes to harvest microbial colonies from the human body and send them for cultivation in a hostile environment such as Mars. Through synthetic biology, scientists will be able to modify human microbes to increase levels of tolerance to extreme conditions. The cultivation of bacteria in space could bring promising healthcare benefits as well as unexpected relationship between the human body and the outer space.
