With Smart as Matter we take a deeper look into new designed materials with unusual and innovative qualities: self repairing surfaces, metal with shape-memory or self contorting textiles.We will also take a fresh look at materials that have been in use for a considerable length of time. Familiar materials can potentially behave in ways that are unfamiliar to us until we decide to reconsider them.
