"Can A Lily Grow A Telephone"
BRIT INSURANCE DESIGN AWARD TROPHY 2011
Bioengineering, speculation and anticipatory design converge to challenge the basis of industry. The silent growth of a cell phone from a genetically modified plant that turns nutrients into cells and cells into biologically formed devices. Beetles with golden shells, insects in the shape of leaves....adaptation to context. We are gripped by the concept of objects made from heat and violence when in parallel nature unfurls wonders that just need a helping hand to accelerate the potential of thoughts that once seem ridiculous but ultimately might become the norm.
