Art + Science = Awesome

These are miniature paintings created in petri dishes and they’re part of a year-long project by San Francisco-based artist Klari Reis entitled Daily Dish 2013.

“Every single day in 2013 San Francisco-based artist Klari Reis is creating an abstract painting inside the confines of the humble petri dish, a cylindrical container used by biologists to culture the growth of cells and algae, something the paintings seem to directly resemble.”

Some of the pieces look like fantastic planets or galaxies. They’re each so beautiful and different from each other and it’s only the beginning of March, so we’ve still got nearly 9 months of daily petri dish paintings to enjoy.
