Vita Imitare is created from Vita meaning Life, Imitare meaning to imitate in the same way Biomimicry comes from the Greek term bios, meaning life, and mimesis, meaning to imitate. Biomimicry is a discipline that studies nature’s best ideas and then attempts to imitate these designs and processes to solve human problems.
“After 3,8 billion years of research and development, failures are fossils, and what surrounds us is the secret to survival.” (Janine Benyus)
Neurons, ant colonies, ecosystems… Nature succeeds through networks, and so will we.
The Biomimicry institute explains the concept this way:Biomimicry (from bios, meaning life, and mimesis, meaning to imitate) is a new discipline that studies nature’s best ideas and then imitates these designs and processes to solve human problems… think of it as “innovation inspired by nature.”
