  • Biology, DIY, 2D->3D

Thesis Brief012510 Presentation 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
