Back to Nature for Innovation

Last months I visited several modern art museums in the United States and The Netherlands. Two really intriging art ‘machines’ tried to copy nature: In Rhode Island they build a micro Glacier and in Utrecht four Stalagmites were live created from wax. Luckily for us they speeded up time, so you could watch them grow.

The only things that aren’t already designed by someone  can be found in nature (unless you believe in Intelligent Design). It is therefor logical to find inspiration there. To get a fresh view, created in millions of years. Mother Nature has had more time then we to come up with successful ideas for complex problems. Proven concepts. Not only if you want to build a submarine, but also how people can work together by looking at ants. The only thing you need is an open mind.
