biopolymer trees

The majority of polymers are petroleum based materials, although there are numerous naturally occurring polymers, they can also be synthesized from non-petrochemical sources. Biopolymer trees are sculptures that speak to the design of polymers from renewable feedstock. The spiky seedpod is meant to caution and stress the fact that this technology is in a vulnerable nascence. Where are the sources of these ingredients and what efforts are being diverted in the development of the technology that could otherwise be used creating solutions to the polymeric waste we currently generate?
