BioInk Fabric Print-it Kit™


Create prints and textile art with colorful bacteria.

New York bioartist Marcus Banks collaborates on a new art kit inspired by his own practice so that you too can create art using living, colourful bacteria.  

Grow patterns, paintings and symbols on petri dishes using the colored bacteria provided in your kit (as well as any colored engineered bacteria you may have created before). Once grown, transfer them directly to paper or textile in any design you like, or use some of the paintbrushes to add some freehand elements to your art. Finish by stabilizing and fixing your creation(s) with the medium provided to lock in the colorful creation.  

What's Included

Comes with sterile water, powdered agar, bacteria paintbrushes, 6 cm Petri dishes, textile, 3 colourful bacteria tubes, fixing agent. 

All compatible with your DNA Playground™ and BioExplorer™
