Adam Brown, The Great Work of the Metal Lover (SEM), 2012, scanning electron micrograph
In this project Adam Brown uses anaerobic bacteria to extract pure gold from a gold chloride solution. He says: “[it] is an artwork that sits at the intersection of art, science and alchemy, re-examining the problem of transmutation through the use of modern microbiological practice and thus solving the ancient riddle.” This scanning electron micrograph shows the bacteria in the process of synthesizing gold.
