Milk plastic

In June the Make blog posted about an Instructable on how to make plastic from milk. I thought it was pretty gross & cool and filed it away.


ew!

Well today I saw what some designers have made with milk plastic, Core 77 blog posted this:



A French design collective called Duende made a collection of jewelry out of plastic made from human breast milk! They are doing a whole exhibition of objects that explore the the relationship between mother and child and food. The exhibition will be on view in France here. (cool space, n'est-ce pas?)

I particularly love this piece since it reminds me of a small book I did maybe 5 years ago about mother's millk and father's seed....if I can find an old sample I'll post that next.
