« When nature inspires technology! »
From September 2 to November 4 2020
Dragonfly wings, granite striations, insects alveoli, crystals, spiders’ silk, jellyfish propulsion, waves oscillation… Since the beginning of life on Earth 4 billion years ago, the mineral, vegetal and animal genius has developed in shapes, matters and systems which have the most incredible abilities: to breath, to light up, to warm up, to resist, and even to fly. From structures and textures to organizations, some high technology inventions seem to be directly inspired by Nature. With the photo contest “MIMESIS”, opened from September 2th to November 4th, Safran invites you to capture - from up close or far away - the treasures of Nature that illustrate these convergences and resonances with technology, whether they are real or not… Time to grab your camera!
