Re: Tyvek



 I am a bit wistful watching all these neat tyvek things flash by.  As I
recall it was a conservation no-no material since the chemical content
was still under observation (longevity, off-gasing, etc.)  At least the
artists are using it (sniff).  Which means fifty years from now the
conservators will have to try and save it, whether they can or not.
Could you creative types out there take a moment to ponder the future, in
practical terms, before you create that monument for the ages which may
only last two years or so?  Of course, if you don't care, nevermind, just
don't get mad if someone asks how long it will last.
