Living Colour is a collective biodesign project exploring the possibilities of designing textiles with pigmented bacteria.
We investigate an alternative to artificial textile dyes as well as a new natural aesthetic. Living Colour advocates sustainable change through visual storytelling, by creating a more meaningful design process and raising awareness among both industry and consumers.
Growing bacteria as a dye factory can lead to a more sustainable way to colour the world.
