  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Fancy being wrapped up in E. coli? Clothed in MRSA? The very idea is enough to make your skin crawl, but for artist Anna Dumitriu it is a source of inspiration. She can turn these terrifying bugs into something strangely beautiful – by combining them with textiles.

  • If you didn't see it with your own eyes, or hear it with your own ears, don't invent it with your small mind and share it with your big mouth!

This is just silly, we have far better means in finding out about bacteria and antibiotics than having it revealed on fabric.
Some people have just got far too much time on their hands.

Who knows what is out there still to be discovered or invented, which has not been done so already? BUT this little invention is not one to add to the archives of achievement, you do not have to use bugs to make something beautiful...she is clutching at straws to find something new.
