This work is about an intraspecies coexistence and the other entity within the artificial oscillation. Where the bacteria grow on the celluloid film and take over the images marked by the color changes of the biochemical process. By the growth of the bacteria colonies who keep ‘eating’ the images of daily human activity, I tried to bring a metaphor about the idea of a temporariness of the living things.

The color changes and gas reaction are monitored and processed by the computer sensor, and translated into specific soundwaves for bringing an audio-visual experience from a temporal rhythm
