Pseudomonas aeruginosa is a common bacterium that can cause disease in plants and animals, including humans. A species of considerable medical importance, P. aeruginosa is a multidrug resistant pathogen recognised for its ubiquity, its intrinsically advanced antibiotic resistance mechanisms, and its association with serious illnesses – hospital-acquired infections such as ventilator-associated pneumonia and various sepsis syndromes.

The colour of this artwork is as the bacteria looks under a microscope.

The artwork was commissioned in 2017 for BathASU.
