“In a very real way, then, materials are a reflection of who we are, a multi-scale expression of our human need and desires.”
Mark Miodownik, Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World

“It is often said that there are very few places left on earth that have yet to be discovered. But those who say this are usually referring to places that exist at the human scale. Take a magnifying glass to any part of your house and you will find a whole new world to explore. Use a powerful microscope and you will find another, complete with a zoo of living organisms of the most fantastic nature. Alternatively, use a telescope and a whole universe of possibilities will open up before you.”
Mark Miodownik, Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World

“We may like to think of ourselves as civilized, but that civilization is in large part bestowed by material wealth. Without this stuff, we would quickly be confronted by the same basic struggle for survival that animals are faced with.”
Mark Miodownik, Stuff Matters: Exploring the Marvelous Materials That Shape Our Man-Made World
