Coloured By Flavo project
The Coloured by Flavo project receives funding from the Smart Culture – Art and Culture research programme of NWO.
In the project Coloured by flavo: The Art and Science of Structural Colours from Flavobacteria, scientists, artists and designers work together. The project is a collaboration of Caradt with Wageningen University and Utrecht University of Applied Sciences.
The aim of the project is to make new bio-based dyes from bacteria. Because all contemporary dyes are ecologically unsustainable. Students and professionals are invited to create innovative designs with these coloured bacteria.
