C-MOULD the world’s largest collection of microorganisms for use in art is pleased to announce two new acquisitions. Two strains of Gluconoacetobacter xylinus, which produce  cellulose nanofibres when grown with sugar. They might not look impressive, but these are the basis of Suzanne Lee’s wonderful BioCouture. I’m planning to grow my own building!
