The Petrification process can be used to create new ceramics for the decorative arts, vases, table tops, plates etc. These applications will be investigated with ceramic and origami craftsmen.
The very good properties of Silicon Carbide in terms of heat resistance, insulation, abrasive, and mechanical strength, opens up technical applications in filters, heating systems, insulation parts or abrasive tools.
The idea of transforming a perishable material into a permanent rock is questionning our relationship to the future. One could imagine choosing the bits of his life he'd like to leave and transfer to next generations by petrifying them. These experiments have not been explored yet, but should be collectively.
