CAPTURE Researchers Collaborate with Artist

You are here

CAPTURE researchers in the group of Prof. Korneel Rabaey have collaborated with Teresa van Dongen to create Electric Life. This is a lamp based on the principle of a microbial fuel cell. Bacteria inside produce a small electrical current while removing organic matter from the water that is provided. In the design, electrodes developed by VITO were also incorporated.

Electric Life was first shown on the Dutch Design Week 2018.
