Our project will include plating three different colors of E. coli and putting them on display (live art). We also want to include a center piece. Possible center pieces include: glowing worms or a log dipped in agar with bioluminescent mushrooms. With the help of Professor Neil and his lab this project will be accomplished! We will plate the three different colors of E. coli possibly on different shaped plates in the lab and put them on the wall for display during the exhibition. Our center piece will be a little more complicated - we have to wait to see what is available for us to buy and use.

Possible themes to explore:
importance of food aesthetics
awareness of food content
dependence on staple foods (grains, milk, eggs, etc.)
where do products of digestion go?
How will we present our ideas?
-eliminate staple out of food (what does a cookie look like without flour?)
-present an ironic display of food (chocolate truffles shaped like hep-C virus)
-take x-ray images of food being digested in the body
-take dye out of food
-body sculpture made of food
-make a "food series" with increasingly fancier representation of food
-provide food samples
-create aroma for added experience
Which food should we use?
