|Venice is sinking. The next generation of technology that could save Venice might harness the power of "life" to produce a living technology with some of the amazing
properties of living systems. Rachel Armstrong is working with an example of living
technology, which uses the life-like properties of "protocells", simple chemistries
made by mixing oil and water. Her protocells have been chemically programmed to
create an artificial limestone reef underneath the city by using local materials in
new ways. Protocells can be designed to remove carbon dioxide and minerals from the
water and work alongside Venice's native carbon-fixing marine organisms to grow a
solid structure. With monitoring and cultivation, the reef is expected to gradually
spread the point load of the city and stop it sinking so fast into the mud on which
it was founded. "Momentum – Rachel Armstrong" is a documentary about the amazing
life of a real genius of today and her quest to developing a new living technology.
Filmed in Oxford (England), London (England), Odense (Denmark) and Venice (Italy).
