The Energy Bending Lab is a modular instrument comprised of a set of custom-built synthesizers and transduction tools to create a real-time sonification of electric properties found in some bacteria. And through the use of cymatics—visible frequency vibrations—it is later converted into a pattern generator. Conceptualized as a DIY interspecies system, the interface amplifies the...

Microbial fuel cells

Microbial fuel cells harness the power of bacteria and convert energy released in metabolic reactions into electrical energy. The  cell consists of two electrodes separated by a semi-permeable membrane submersed in an electrolyte solution. The bacteria break down food wastes and sewage to generate an electric current and continue to replicate producing power indefinitely as...
