Anika Yi is an amazing artist who takes things that most people find gross or disturbing and turned them in eye catching works. This piece is made up of bacteria that is formed from swabbing different things in Chinatown and Koreatown and being allowed to grow and spread. They were fed agar to help create this color. Its amazing that all the bacteria are alive, which means that the pieces of work could change in time due to the growth of bacteria. The beauty that is created from something most people kill and get disgusted by is gorgeous, each pane/tile of the work is different and Yi had little control how each tile would look yet they all blend together to make a gorgeous piece!
