Miya Ando travelled to Puerto Rico where she floated 1000 resin and (non-toxic) phosphorescence-coated leaves in a small pond. During the day the phosphorescence collected and absorbed energy from sunlight, giving them a soft, blue glow at night.
Coleoptera insect plastic by Aagje Hoekstra: Aagje took the armour of dead Darkling Beetles, which grow from larvae known as mealworms, to create the Coleoptera bioplastic that she showed during Dutch Design Week 2013. "In the Netherlands mealworms are bred for the animal food industry but they transform into beetles. After laying its eggs the beetle dies, so insect farms in the Netherlands are throwing away 30 kilograms of dead beetles every week." http://www.aagjehoekstra.nl/
