    There is an artist in Australia named Julie Ryder who also does interesting things with materials, based on her botanical and chemistry knowledge. I really think that these innovators are cutting - edge with the experimenting that they do. It is no differently to ancient forebears discovering that they could make silk cloth from cocoons - it is just new knowledge.Thanks for posting the info. I found it very interesting.

    I agree with you. It is from these "what ifs" that we as humans species progress.
