The Living Language project

The Living Language project

Research

The Living Language project is a multidisciplinary 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.

The project was first presented as a final thesis at Bezalel Academy of Art and Design in Jerusalem at the department of Visual Communication. The Bio-ink in this project was created using Paenibacillus vortex bacterium, with it I explored the interactions between nature and culture. This ongoing project also explores the developing states of the Hebrew language and the Hebrew character. Using the research, experiments and results, I questioned nature, culture, character and language with some new theories of my own and in search for ways in which biological fabrication technologies can interact with the design world.
