Hazmat suit or tux

Machine project is up and running once again after the holidays. Tomorrow's messy affair will celebrate the "Aesthetics of Bacteria."

Excerpts from Machine's gracious email invite:

Please join us on Thursday night [Jan. 10, 8 p.m. Free] for a lecture and workshop with Denise King and her collection of decorative bacteria.
Denise King visits us from San Francisco’s Exploratorium to discuss the aesthetic cultivation of bacteria. She will be presenting an introduction to identifying bacteria in the field, focusing on environments that are accessible from the Los Angeles area. ...
Sample columns filled with lovely multihued stuff with be available for show and tell purposes, and willing participants will be able to make their own bacterial terrarium on site (supplies limited). We suggest wearing casual clothes or a disposable hazmat suit if you plan on participating, as it may get slightly messy. For those who plan on just observing, standard formal wear should be fine.

They were too polite to say "no BYOS" [Bring Your Own Spores]. It's not that kind of party. But, seriously, it sounds like fun.
