Super black

The National Physical Laboratory in London has created a "Super Black" material which absorbs 99.7% of the visible light incident upon it. Scientific uses for black materials are numerous but Annanova reports that several artists have reported an interest. If there is one artist who should be thrilled by this, it's Pierre Soulages.
