A sensational claim, some may say. And yet The Telegraph’s Pictures of the Day for February 10, 2014, contain incontrovertible evidence.
The sixth picture with caption:
A portrait of Stephen Fry grown from his own bacteria. The ‘bacteriographs’ are made from a sample of the subjects’ bacteria – and have been grown by Zachary Copfer, an American microbiologist-cum-photographer. To make the Pop Art style images, Zachary cleverly exposes areas of a petri dish to radiation in order to stimulate the bacteria’s growth. This creates a photograph grown entirely from the bacteria itself. Zachary is the only person in the world practicing this art, which he terms ‘Bacteriography’. This is the first time his work has been brought to the UK.
Disgusting enough on its own, but then comes shocking proof of the role Fry’s bacteria painting will play in the future of society’s destruction. Photo 7 with caption:
People dressed as 17th century plague doctors on the London Underground en-route to The London Dungeon, as the attraction is promoting a Bubonic Plague event Outbreak! running from 17-24 February.
I see from the juxtaposition of these two photos that Stephen Fry’s bacteria portrait contains a new plague, introduced for the first time to the UK in portrait form, which will sweep through the world as did the original bubonic plague. Thanks a lot, Stephen Fry. I expected better from you and your bacteria.
