  • Explore the relationships that arise from using molecular forms in wearables. What unique shapes can be achieved?
  • 2D->3D, Robert Lang
  • Biology, DIY, 2D->3D
  • Transcript

    • 1. crystallized<br />01.25.10<br />
    • 2. research concept <br />Molecular biology is a source of myriad well-validated structures & shapes<br />These forms can be deconstructed or abstracted and used as building blocks to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.<br />
    • 3. design questions<br />How can biological structures and forms be meaningfully deconstructed and applied to wearables?<br />What novel and functional architectures can be created<br />When thinking of these geometries as building blocks, which elements must be held constant and which may be stretched or changed?<br />What applications might there be for such forms in other realms? <br />
