  • 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
      01.25.10
    • 2. research concept
      Molecular biology is a source of myriad well-validated structures & shapes
      These forms can be deconstructed or abstracted and used as building blocks to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.
    • 3. design questions
      How can biological structures and forms be meaningfully deconstructed and applied to wearables?
      What novel and functional architectures can be created
      When thinking of these geometries as building blocks, which elements must be held constant and which may be stretched or changed?
      What applications might there be for such forms in other realms?
    • 4. viruses
      Helical
      Polyhedral
      Enveloped helical
      Enveloped polyhedral
    • 5. prototypes
    • 6. treemaker origami
      Domains: 2D->3D forms, DIY
    • 7. n-e-r-v-o-u-s system
      Domains: biology, fashion, DIY
    • 8. mashallah designs
      Domains: 2D->3D forms, biology, data viz, DIY wearables
    • 9. Diana Eng’s deployable structures
      Domains: 2D->3D forms, biology (plant), fashion

    • 19. challenges
      Scalability
      Can this be a small business?
      Technical
      Must build a friendlier interface than what’s out there now
      Social assumptions about viruses
      This concept doesn’t address genetic content of viruses, either the genetic material encased inside viruses, genetic variance, evolution, or mutations
    • 20. connections
