Dirt: The Bio-Design Work of Mary Lempres

Please join us for an exhibition of the work of Designer-In-Residence Mary Lempres on Saturday August 13 from 1-4 pm in the Petrichor Gallery at Marinship Studios in Sausalito.

By growing bacteria that already exists in natural clays and sands, Mary's work asks: How can synthetic biology be leveraged in traditional crafts to bring us closer to natural processes?

Inspired by the rich, biologically active crusts of the desert southwest as well as the vibrant hues of the salt flats of the South Bay, Mary's work investigates the symbiotic relationship between living and nonliving material and how materiality can connect us to place, people, and the living earth we stand on. By treating earth as a circular medium for biomanufacturing, she celebrates active bacteria and minerals that heal our soils: filtering out pesticides, improving water retention, and using CO2 as a growth medium.

Please join us for an afternoon of bio-design.
