Crystallized040910

  1. 1. crystallized 04.09.10
  2. 2. virus forms •  helical •  enveloped helical •  polyhedral •  enveloped polyhedral
  3. 3. research concept Virology is a source of well-validated structures & shapes. These architectural forms can be deconstructed or abstracted to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.
  4. 4. virus-like particles as vaccines •  Proteins from the outer shell + surface proteins •  No genetic material – lack viral nucleic acids •  Can be successful in eliciting an immune response without eliciting infection •  HPV and HepB vaccines are composed of virus-like particles – first to be approved by the FDA
  5. 5. primary design questions •  How can virus-like structures and forms be meaningfully deconstructed and applied to wearables? •  What novel and functional architectures can be created
  6. 6. precedents
  7. 7. n-e-r-v-o-u-s system Domains: biology, fashion, DIY
  8. 8. mashallah designs Domains: 2D->3D forms, biology, data viz, DIY wearables
  9. 9. Diana Eng’s deployable structures Domains: 2D->3D forms, biology (plant), fashion
  10. 10. prototypes
  11. 11. Thanks comments/questions?
