Turns out the petri plate makes for a very nice canvas.

Not technically microbial art (which would have been very very impressive), but still pretty cool nevertheless…

How about a tea in the ribcage of a fully articulated 95-foot bowhead whale skeleton?


“In 1831 the skeleton of a 95-foot bowhead whale was displayed in a pavilion at Charing Cross, as part of a tour that had also touched Ostend and Paris. Visitors could ascend a flight of steps to a stage set within the ribcage, where they could sit at a table and write puns in the guest book. (“Why should we be mourned for if killed by the falling of the bones of the whale? We should be be-wailed.”)”
