From the work of artist Jason Fahrion, who raises silkworms in his garage on local mulberry leaves, to UCLA iGEM’s quest for genetically modifying bacteria to produce fluorescent silk, a cabinet of curiosities at the Art|Sci Gallery weaves a story of silk, and of the biological factories that humans have carefully cultivated to manufacture it.
