magical contamination: mould as art by antoine bridier-nahmias 

 

 

 

mould and other related fungi are not exactly the first things that come to mind when envisioning an artistic medium, but antoine bridier-nahmias has done just that. his ‘magical contamination‘ series, explores the impressive diversity of textural and color qualities that mould exhibits, resulting in what some might consider more of a science experiment than creative endeavour. antoine paints bacteria into petri dishes, shaping an array of patterns and visual forms which he photographically documents on his tumblr page.
