While working with Guy Ben-Ary and Nathan Thompson to develop the tissue engineering protocols for their biorobotic (biobot) artwork Bricolage (2020), they were kind enough to allow me access to their materials. I was able to design and produce my own biobots using cardiomyocytes (heart muscle cells) and electrospun silk scaffolds. 
The biobots were visibly contracting for several days until they failed due to the rigidity of the electrospun silk scaffold.
