Computers Don't Eat Sugar to Make More Computers was an installation made possible by the art space Shoreline. The work consisted of growing 600 samples of a Symbiotic Culture of Bacterial Yeast. The opportunity was used to attempt two things: the first was to try and understand what ratio and condition produces bacteria the fastest. The second was to try and replicate my weight between the samples. In the end I grew about 90,000 grams of bacteria which is 166% my own weight.


The installation period ended in filling a 3 meter tall tank with the samples, creating the sculpture Tower.
