Gram Stain Result/ Jelly Mould Result

These are the gram-stain results seen through the microscope, I absolutely love them! They are my favourite thing that we have done so far, I’ve never seen bacteria through a microscope before so it’s completely new to me. For me, they look like beautiful patterns or almost like abstract ariel views from google maps.. such as the forest! These stunning images have inspired us to incorporate them into our final piece, it would be such a shame not to use them. The colours in the last 3 images show that those bacteria is gram negative? I may have got that wrong, need to check with Mark.

Our Jelly moulds tuned out really well too, and managed to hold the shape well – this bodes well for our future plans of making agar faces. We have kept it in a box until we are ready to put our bacteria onto it to attempt to grow it. I think we are also going to attempt to try and put bacteria inside of a clear agar version of this.
