Invisible Resources by Zuzana Gombosova

The future potential of bacteria as a living material that can be grown rather than manufactured has been explored by many designers and scientists over the last decade. Zuzana Gombosova’s project Invisible resources seeks to explore the potential manufacturing processes and application for this living material. By proposing a future biological printer that is capable of controlling the growth of the cellulose, through feeding specific areas to stimulate growth. Although her project offers a new innovative way of material engineering, Gombosova continues to question her own design and humans desire to control nature.
