    This is an audiovisual hybrid art work that combines the self-reflections of three scientists who participated in an art and science collaboration about the use of bio-cellulose for art and design purposes. The work uses virtual reality (in the form of a 3D Gallery), a 14-minute long video documentary and a photography exhibition to provide a view of ongoing research trends in this exciting area combining art and materials engineering.

    The 3D Gallery can be accessed directly here,
