The SCI-FA Project #1: PORTRAITS OF MILK BACTERIA
The Sci-Fa Project is created by our research assistant Zoljargal Enkh-Amgalan in collaboration with the Mongolian fashion brand FUTURISTIC TYPE. The first edition of this project combines science and fashion by using SEM (Scanning Electron Microscope) photos of artisanal Mongolian dairy products that our team collected during fieldwork in Mongolia’s Khövsgöl province in 2017.
The aim is to create ‘’Smart Clothing’’ inspired by the latest developments in scientific research and theory across different fields. In fact, through showing what is invisible to the bare eye, the “Portraits of Milk Bacteria” collection transfers scientific knowledge about Mongolian dairy products and information about its bacteria through these microscopic images printed on clothes, with additional explanatory tags.
