Colours from marine microalgae
Algaemy is a project that investigates the potential of microalgae as a pigment in textile printing and results are extremely promising. Because the microalgae colour pigments are not lightfast, they transform over time, unlike conventional, chemical-based textile dyes.
Algaemy's biodynamic colours gradually change when exposed to sunlight, so, for example, green becomes an intense blue, while pale pink turns bright red and eventually orange. Every textile thus conveys a temporal story based on exposure and use.
The BioArt Gallery presents promising feedstock and its related bioeconomy applications in everyday life with 60 stunning pictures. It offers an innovative approach of showcasing to the public some examples of bio-based products and applications currently available in the market through several examples: cosmetics, nutraceuticals, tissues, toys and sport, disposable tableware, cleaning products, gadgets, and much more.
The BioArt Gallery has been displayed to the public in severall incredible venues throughout Europe, and now BIOVOICES makes it available to you through an interactive digital platform!
