Alwe-Dry consists of 100% natural microalgae, which grow on the canvas and are then preserved.
Each image is created by the individual growth process of the algae. Thus, each image is a work of art created by nature itself.
Microalgae, when dry, have the property of turning their natural green coloration into a bright blue.

Alwe Dry - What is it?
The unique look of the Alwe-Dry attracts attention and creates fascination.
Alwe-Dry refers to a dried and preserved biofilm made from microalgae. The individual algae grow together to form a uniform layer under controlled conditions. Within this structure, nutrient exchange can also take place between individual algae. In addition, a protective layer is formed to protect the algae from external environmental influences.
The biofilm that has grown after several weeks is then dried and preserved using a special process. This process gives the biofilm its structure and color.
In addition to forming a protective layer, the microalgae used have the ability to change their color from a green shade to a blue shade after drying. Alwe-Dry is therefore undergoing slow but constant change. The beginning and speed of this process depends on the location of the Alwe-Dry.
The biofilm is placed in a frame so that you can hang or set up the algae on the wall without much effort. You can also combine several pictures to form an algae wall.
