Future Flora – Celebrating Female Biophilia

Future Flora is a simple, interactive and revolutionary project created by Tomasello as part of the Material Futures MA course at Central Saint Martins, in order to treat common female Candida infections like thrush. By using agar jelly in the form of a sanitary towel, the product uses bacteria, grown in the agar jelly and placed as a pad in front of a vagina, to balance vaginal pH-levels to prevent and treat Candid yeast infections. Its apparatus includes a Petri dish, an Arduino DIY incubator to grow bacteria at home, a freeze-dried bacterial compounded pipette and an inoculation loop wire which gathers the microbes that have formed and it's fairly easy to use.
