Editor's Pick

To promote the new Warner Bros. movie "Contagion" Lowe Roche had some fun playing around with massive amounts of bacteria and fungi. Two giant petri dishes full of bacteria were installed in a storefront in Toronto. Over next couple of days, the bacteria multiplied, producing a one-of-a-kind billboard that depicts the spread of the virus, just like the film. Bacteria included penicillin, mold and pigmented bacteria.
