  • 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?

    1. 1. crystallized<br />Katherine Lee<br />12.08.09<br />
    2. 2. concept<br />
    3. 3. 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 />
    4. 4. 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 />
