Will our textiles be made out of living matter in the near future?
By way of careful and practical biomaterial research FiloSkin is a speculative project that proposes a thread made of H. Pluvialis, a certain microalga that is capable of producing oxygen, filtering CO2 from the air and respond to changes in the environment by taking on different colours.
We can imagine a future where this thread is what textiles are made of, forming intricate biomaterial networks, capable of interacting with our bodies through a symbiotic relationship with the skin. If FiloSkin would become a reality it might serve to mitigate environmental problems while adapting humans to future pollution conditions.
