  • Add slide in about the 3 things: kit, interface, different piecesTalk about how mine is viruses/molecular v. dianaeng’sBring kit to presentation, along with Thai’s hat
  • Explore the relationships that arise from using molecular forms in wearables. What unique shapes can be achieved?

    • 2. concept
    • 3. 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.
    • 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?
    • 5. viruses
