Bill Durgin, Memory Black, 2013

Memory Black is memory foam and black fluid.
Memory Black is dark memory, poignant memory,
obliterated memory.
Memory is ambiguous and often liminal.
Memory foam forgets.
Black is dark.
Black is sexy.
Black is obliterated.

Silk is a natural protein fibre, some forms of which can be woven into textiles.
Silkworms are known for their silk production, but silks are produced by several other insects.
It’s the spider whose silk is the strongest natural protein fibre known to man,
multiple times stronger than steel.

Imagine a spider silk vest, capable of catching bullets.
But why bother with a vest; Imagine replacing keratin
(the protein responsible for the toughness of the human skin) with this spider silk protein.

This is possible by adding the silk producing genes of a spider to the genome of a human: 
Creating a Bulletproof Human.

the maximum weight and velocity of a .22 calibre Long Rifle bullet 
from which a Type 1 bulletproof vest should protect you.
