The development of a moss surface (mossaic) resulted from my work with bryophytes in conjunction with biophotovoltaic electricity generation.
In addition to the study of mosses for their historical uses, cultural and aesthetic aspects, an important strand of my investigation was to grow different types of mosses hydroponically. Experiments with some species were very successful, less so with others - but in any case, the outcome was aesthetically highly intriguing.
