Did you know? #44

Did you know that all of our past exhibitions are available online?

Substitute: animal vegetable mineral
Plastics are unusually versatile materials. As a result they can act as substitutes in different ways for a vast range of other materials. For example, they can imitate the appearance of other materials and fulfil the role of other materials without necessarily resembling them.

This exhibition presents a wide range of plastics according to the Linnaean classification of the substituted materials: animal, vegetable and mineral, and explores some of the ensuing benefits.
