  • Concept:Biology => well-validated structures for intelligent designCan biological structures and forms can be deconstructed or abstracted to building blocks for the creation of novel/unprecedented and functional wearables?Biological structure and forms can be deconstructed and applied to wearables to create novel, functional shapes. If biology can provide the inspiration for intelligent, modern design, I would like to explore this premise: using biological structures and forms as the building blocks for creating novel and functional wearables.

    • 2. concept
    • 3. research concept
      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.
    • 4. 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?
