@ VOL 133 ON FEB 24, 2016

“If I have one motto, it’s that you should probably try to work with unusual materials and unorthodox methods.”

Dealing with the evolution of the Hebrew language and letter, Ori uses scientific procedures and a live organism – the Paenibacillus vortex bacteria– as his medium.
