Printing photographs with algae

In Progress

Chlorella vulgaris is denser than water, so it slowly sinks to the bottom of its container to form a thin film of algae.

The algae stays in place, so when I project an image on the thin layer of algae, they multiply faster in areas that recieve more light.
