Microbial Time Machine

bactoyou is a speculative microbial time machine that empowers its users to collect, sequence, explore, and bac-up their previous microbial states; By creating a historical database of their microbiome over time, we allow users to jump back in time and reconstitute their present gut microbiome based on specific previous states.

This project was chosen as a finalist for the BioDesign Challenge 2018 and was presented at MoMA, New York City, was showcased at the Nature/PostNature exhibition at Parsons School of Design and the Biodesign: From Inspiration to Integration at Woods-Gerry Gallery in Providence, 2018.
