Shades of Mutation
Material and colour forecast for Viewpoint Magazine, Issue 29.
Applying engineering principles to the complexity of living systems, scientists are using biology as a new material for design. Combining cutting-edge scientific research and artistic vision, laboratories such as the Department of Plant Sciences at Cambridge University in the UK are harnessing biological processes and tools to engineer plant form. Leading to a new world of rich colour and texture at once natural and hyper-natural. Get set for a future landscape of morphogenesis, transgenic plants and botanical mutations.
