Of Nature is Me, You, the Sun Moon, Stars and Beings

Sculpture in iron by marguerita

Bio design is not about merely taking cues from organic structures and operations.
 It’s about harnessing the machinery of the natural world to perform as nature does:

 storing and converting energy, 

producing oxygen, 

neutralizing poisons

 and disposing wastes

 in life-sustaining ways.

 “And when you’re done with this chair, unlike an Ikea chair, you don’t landfill the thing. 
You throw it in the garden 
and it feeds other creatures.
 It’s part of the web of life.”
