I did same kind of works one year ago (from last May) but I did not know when this piece of work was done. Who can tell me he knew this kind of work before May, 2001?

Saw that photo recently in Harper's. It's terrific--at first I thought I was looking at an old photo or daguerrotype or something. I wonder if he's made any more...

BTW - It's a picture of a demolished WWII submarine bunker in Kiel, Germany. For all you people that just can't see the sub....


There is a larger pic at http://www.artnet.com/ag/fineartdetail.asp...&group=&max_tn_page=


The text also says that Lissel also used microscope photographs of the bacteria themselves as negatives for the bacteria-photography. No pictures of that to be found though, too bad.

Ciao.

Lem wrote an SF story about this, long long ago. He wrote about a scientist who trained bacteria in petri dishes to grow in dots and dashes of morse code.
