ABOUT THE PROJECT

IMG_9224 copy

The Living Language project is an interdisciplinary BioDesign project, dealing and questioning the evolution of the Hebrew language and letter, using scientific procedures and working with a live organism - the Paenibacillus vortex bacterium.

An ink created by growing Paenibacillus bacteria on petri dishes, allowing the interactions between nature and culture to be revealed.
This ongoing project also explores the developing states of the Hebrew language and the Hebrew character. Using my experiments and research results, I am exploring nature, culture, character and language with new theories.
