Love this project by recent Artez design graduate Vivian Hartung.
Here's what she wrote about it on her website:

"A research into the possibility of growing graphic patterns on textile materials using algae. By manipulation light or adding pressure point it's possible to control the algae growth and create patterns."

Find more photographs on Vivian Hartungs website,. there you can also find more information about her algae-inspired graduation project My Atomic Body.
