Description from the artist's website: "The ‘Algaerium Bioprinter’ envisions how microalgal cells can be grown and digitally printed for production of ‘fresh’ food supplements, organic dyes on paper, and printable biological solar batteries."
From Olga Kisseleva's website: "In collaboration with the team of biologists from INRIA, the artist created a method to include into a tree’s ADN a fragment of the ADN of a dead parent. The planted tree becomes a kind of memorial alive."
