Designed and ordered my first ever newspaper from Newspaper Club! Finally finished and so excited for it to be delivered!
Briefly documenting a projection exhibition set up in Bower Ashton. Displaying the facts and history known of bacteria along side a stop motion interpretation of bacteria in a petri dish. The projection is to communicate the science and history behind bacteria in an informative way.
Your blog is absolutely amazing! I received my degree in Genetics and was really interested in biological illustrations. What got you interested in doing your projects in the science field?! (sorry, I am logged into my work tumblr account)
Hello, thanks for your interest! For my self-directed study I chose to explore the subject of Bacteria as I think it is such an interesting subject - our whole lives are thanks to Bacteria yet when questioning people about it there seems to be this bad stigma associated with the subject, (such as mould, etc). I thought there would be a lot of room to explore ways to communicate it’s function and importance within our lives, and demolish the perception of thinking Bacteria being dirty. Also I found there hasn’t been a lot of collaboration between the fields of design and science so wanted to combine something new, especially being such an important and relevant subject! Thanks for your support! To see more of my work please feel free to check out my website, www.sophie-slade.com :)

One of 3 consecutive books showcasing outcomes and projects throughout my self directed study. This publication all falls under the title ‘Bacteria matters’, showing ways I have designed ways to communicate its importance in our lives. The other books are ‘interactive bacteria’ and ‘Hidden bacteria’.
My designed 3D printed bacteria! Communicating the complex function and strucutre of bacteria in an interactive way.
Interactive bacteria poster, showing the hidden wonders of bacteria.
This project aims to enforce the consistency and significance of bacteria in our lives. An inferred sensor connected to an arduino triggers once hands are placed inside the box. This in turn makes an ultraviolet light shine down onto your hands, making all the bacteria glow and visible. 90% of cells in our bodies are bacterium, and this installation project highlights its constant presence and vital being in our lives. It aims to enhances our knowledge of bacteria through an interactive experience, enabling us to look at bacteria in a new, engaging way.
