This tutorial invites humans to explore the connection with the other life forms through bio-fabric – bacterial cellulose that grows during the natural fermentation process of a kombucha drink. The tutorial looks into the properties of this material and possible future uses, as well as reflects on the symbolic meaning of biofabrics grown in the laboratory, the human relationship with them and connection to nature.
