The human fungal pathogen Candida albicans alkalinizes the local extracellular environment.
Two colonies of C. albicans grown for 19 days on GM-bromocresol green agar, pH 4. The fungus actively raises the pH of its surrounding environment. This alkalinization converts the normally dull green medium to a strong teal blue, whilst the filamentous fringes of the colonies (white) extend away from each other (see Mayer et al., doi: 10.1371/journal.ppat.1002592).

“I like the idea of the photograph as something that joins me to the world, that connects me to others, that I can share. I can get in touch with somebody when they recognize a feeling: ‘Oh, I felt like that before. I remember jeans hanging on the banister, even though I’ve never seen that exact pair. I’ve seen my oranges on a windowsill’. It’s the sense that ‘I’m not alone’. That’s the driving force behind sharing these things – that I want to find connections in people. I believe that every thought and idea has to be somehow rendered through personal experience, and then generalized.” (Wolfgang Tillmans, in ‘Gil Blank and Wolfgang Tillmans in conversation’, Influence, issue 2, 2004, p. 119)
“The Freischwimmer series connects intention and wish to the uncontrollable with far more intensity. Ultimately it deals with traces and compositions I actively bring into the picture manually.” - Wolfgang Tillmans
