Beauty may, as they say, be in the eye of the beholder, but beauty is also found in the most unexpected places - like rocks that look like a lumps of coal.
It's also found in places inaccessible to the human eye. Thanks to digital technology, we are now discovering a whole new world of natural beauty at the microscopic and molecular levels.

Not only could you not have seen many of these images 20, even 10, years ago, we would not have been able to reproduce them without the modern miracle of digital printing.
Our scarves, for example, come from rock billions of years old, use silk produced as it has been for millenia, yet depend on printing presses only commercially efficient for the last 10 years or so.
But in the end, this technology only opens the door. It is for those with the eyes to see beauty, like Richard and Tina, to explore the space beyond - and that's what we are doing every day.
It's not easy, but it is rewarding and exhilarating!
