In a touching homage to that sad time which occurs just before payday, when you’re not entirely sure if your green pesto has grown considerably in size or if, yes, that’s actually mould you’re popping in your pasta, Antoine Bridier-Nahmias has taken to photographing his fungus-centric creations and posting them all on a wonderfully weird blog, Magical Contamination.
There’s something fascinating about the grey matter which exists between “naturally occurring gross shit” and organic-inspired art, but his petri-dishes do, weirdly, hold some kind of creative power. Although Antoine insists that his interest in his experiments is purely aesthetic, they do hold a kind of intrigue to the biochemics out there. “Why is that one blue?” “What are they?” and “How did this one get so big?” are just a few of the questions he has kindly responded to on his blog, where you can see the creations in a whole rainbow of colourful guises. Disgusting? Yes, but I defy you not to exclaim, “urgh, but look at that one!” while gazing on in wonder.
