Post Bio-Art help
I'm a technology designer. Among other things, I make interactive art. I have an idea for an installation project that uses some biological component. Right now I'm thinking about what living material will be easiest to work with while providing the most interesting visual. I've been reading up on bioluminescence and GFP. I'm also considering water bears (because they are so resilient). I want something that has easily observable change, so that it stays interesting. Maybe an amoeba or something that reproduces regularly would be good. Any suggestions on what sort of bio material would be most interesting? Also, I may wind up working with a lab, but if possible, I'd like to take a DIY approach.

I've been meaning to say something about this for a while, but this seems like an appropriate point because you actually have an idea of what you would like to get out of it. It has been my observation of the sorts of questions raised here and other sites that few people interested in DIY bio have any clear objective or direction. They ask about experiments they've heard about and do things with no objective in mind. Good science, even purely exploratory science, still has a clear plan of action which necessitates some generalized goal. Keep that in mind at all times. You may have a general question or end goal that you would like to approach. Start with that and narrow it down. Once you do that then you can start asking how to approach the issue.

You know how you want to apply biology to this, which is good. You know that you want it to be interactive. That is also good. This already gives you some general direction. The easiest organisms to work with will be E. Coli and Yeast. My question for you is how do you envision your art work looking. Do you have any idea of what the final product may be? Imagine that first and then it will be easier to plan out how to go about achieving it.

Art work is totally creative and based on some one's taste and mood..yeah you can take idea from other's work but its your own try and wish. My hobby is creating beautiful things of the nature which highly inspired to everyone and give a cheerful feeling in this frustrated era.
