Living Lace

I am currently exploring Helion 15  (a unique photosynthetic biomaterial fashioned from little more than sunlight and air)  with conceptual women’s wear designer Victoria Geaney (Royal College of Art).

We are currently characterising this exciting and unique biomaterial as it forms symbiotic relationships with traditional textiles. As it grows on these textiles. the organism not only infiltrates the fabric fibres and makes the material photosynthetic,  but it also moves beyond the material and onto the surface that holds it making it difficult to determine where the manmade material ends and where the purely biological organism begins.
