Star Stuff  is an installation of living phosphorescent bacteriographs of the cosmos taken by the Hubble telescope. Each celestial form is comprised of billions and billions of genetically engineered E. coli that have grown in such a pattern that they form a photographic reproduction of a celestial object. The installation is meant to instill in the viewer a sense of wonderment and awe reminiscent of the emotions experienced by poets and artists as they gazed at the stars. The idea is to suggest that the scientific view of the universe is not cold and passionless, that in actuality, it is deeply poetic.
