Clarice Risseeuw and her team awarded at CHI 2024 for innovative research on flavobacteria

At the international stage, Clarice Risseeuw, (former Biobased Art and Design researcher), has been honored at the CHI 2024 conference for the paper she presented on her innovative research into the applications of Flavobacteria.

CHI 2024 Clarice Risseeuw

Clarice Risseeuw, along with her colleagues Holly McQuillan, Joana Martins, and Elvin Karana, recently received an Honourable Mention Award for their paper on Flavobacteria presented at the prestigious CHI 2024 conference in Honolulu. The paper, titled “(Re)activate, (Re)direct, (Re)arrange: Exploring the Design Space of Direct Interactions with Flavobacteria,” delves into the utilization of structurally-colored Flavobacteria for enhancing human-microbe interactions. This innovative research, in collaboration with TU Delft, Hoekmine, and Bio4Life, opens new avenues for sustainable living biosensors to foster a circular economy.


CHI 2024, hosted from May 11-16 at the Hawaiʻi Convention Center, is the premier international conference of Human-Computer Interaction, organized by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM). This year’s conference theme, “Surfing the World,” reflects its focus on pioneering the wave of cutting-edge technology and exploring new developments in human-computer interaction. The conference serves as a platform for researchers, practitioners, and industry leaders from around the globe to share their insights and foster collaboration in the field.

This research was part the Living Circular Labels (LCL) project. A comprehensive summary of the Living Circular Labels (LCL) project, which includes the integration of bacteria into biodegradable labels and their activation to function as biosensors, can be found in this master’s thesisarrow by Clarice’s graduate student Evy Murraij.

Research Group: Biobased Art and Design

The research group Biobased Art and Design capitalises on the role of artistic practice in unlocking the unique potentials of living organisms for everyday materials and communicating these to a broader public. In doing so, the group aims to instigate and accelerate our widespread understanding, further development and usage of such materials. The group’s research approach encourages tangible interactions with the living organisms, such as algae, fungi, plants and bacteria, to explore and understand their unique qualities and constraints through diverse technical and creative methods taking artists, designers and scientists as equal and active partners in the material creation.
