Sonja Bäumel is a fashion designer based in Austria who collaborates with microbiologists to create stunning art. My favourite at the moment is the Human Petri Dish. Check out her bountiful site. You can also access a full paper she presented at Design4Health 2013 conference here.

Cartography of the Human Body, 2010/11, in collaboration with Erich Schopf

Sonja Bäumel, supported by the bacteriologist Erich Schopf, has found a unique way of visualizing the invisible surface of the human body. She uses a gigantic petri dish as canvas and the bacteria living on her own body as colour. She develops and speaks a language combining art and science and thus creates a biologically living whole-body picture.
