During biofilm formation bacterial colonies change from 2D layers to 3D structures, and during gastrulation 2D layers of epithelial cells fold as an initial step to creating 3D tissues. I will discuss recent results that suggest that the ideas of active matter might be useful in helping to understand these changes of shape.
