Entry Description: Using a set of rules and a methodology based on a scientific world, the Living Language project explores the interactions between nature and culture. A special ink made from the Paenibacillus vortex bacteria, re-creates the evolution process of the Hebrew letter, using a live organism. The designer asked some linguistic questions and answered them by holding an interdisciplinary experiment where he forces bacteria to perform a 2000 years evolution process of the Hebrew letter, within 5 days. Using his research, experiments and results, he questioned nature, culture, character and language with some new theories of his own.
