This work is a quadraphonic sound installation that uses novel sonification methodology
to transform the binding energy between a single molecule of Borrelia bacteria and
human protein cell into auditory perception. Borrelia bacteria are known as pathogens
that can cause Lyme disease in humans. In this work, the pathogen-human molecular
level of physical interaction was measured by Atomic Force Microscopy technology
which practically can touch a single molecule to measure the binding force between
these two different biomolecules. By looking at the interspecies relationship in parasitism,
this work tries to see it as a mutualistic and long-term relationship rather than the
negative effect on the host’s side.
This work has been developed by collaborating with Biophysics Institute at Johannes Kepler University in Linz, Austria, and Twelve Lab in The Hague, Netherlands.This work has been supported by
Akademie Schloss Solitude, Stuttgart, Germain and
Braunschweig Project, HBK, Braunschweig, Germany.
