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.

Hawaiian Bobtail Squid (Euprymna scolopes)
…a small species of bobtail squid native to the waters of the central Pacific, and is most common off of the Hawaiian and Midway islands. Hawaiian bobtail squid are usually found near the bottom where they hunt and feed on a myriad of shrimp species. Like other bobtail squid E.scolopes has a light organ which functions due to a symbiotic relationship with the bacteria A.fischeri, the bacteria are fed on a solution by the squid and in turn help hide the squids silhouette with light. The squid are not born with these bacteria and must acquire them directly from the environment by using a mucus. Once the bacteria is inside the squid the bacteria is fed and helps the squid stay hidden via counter-illumination. Despite all the effort that the squid goes through to collect the bacteria it jettisons most of them daily, via a process called venting. This is done because being bioluminescent is costly and it is far more efficient to simply expel the bacteria when the squid is resting and does not need them.
