photoSYNTHETICS

A response to Julian Melchiorri’s  synthetic biological leaf. These are photosynthetic biomaterials that incorporate Cyanophytes, auxotrophic photosynthetic bacteria. Unlike Melchiorri’s embedded chloroplasts, these materials contain robust and self replicating photosynthetic cells that survive in the matrix of the materials. Had I the time, I could cut these into leaf shapes.
