  • 3. Domains: highly-related & narrowed down?Every time you present you touch on very interesting domains which can all potentially inter-relate.  There is potential.4. Does working design question fit the experiment? is the experiment related and part of the larger thesis concept?Not sure what the experiment is yet.5. MethodologyI have not observed a methodology or consistent way of advancing each week.6. Prototype (level of development and finish?)Not yet.7. User testingN/A - and is critical before the review!8. Results of user tests?N/A - and is critical before the review!9. Analysis—what worked and did not work-lessons learnedN/A - and is critical before the review!

  • concept
  • basis of research
    Biological structures and forms can be deconstructed and applied to wearable objects to create novel or functional shapes.
  • Domains + precedents
  • n-e-r-v-o-u-s system
    Domains: Biology, DIY wearables
  • treemaker origami
    Domains: 2D->3D forms, DIY
  • mashallah designs
    Domains: 2D->3D forms, biology, data viz, DIY wearables
  • Angela Belcher’s nanotextiles
    Domains:biology, data visualization
  • prototypes
  • users
  • target user profile
    Category: Fashion/design enthusiasts, particularly DIY community
    Age: 18-40
    Gender: primarily female
  • user groups
  • user poll
  • testing
  • questions
    How do you feel about using molecular structures as the basis for wearable designs? (see examples)
    Do you have an interest in having the ability to customize the design of things you wear?
    Do you think there is generally demand for this capability? Why or why not?
  • results
  • feedback
    Cool/interesting forms
    Like the idea of making things customized
    Need better material
    Need to define constants and variables
    keep the algorithm constant and let the person dictate which "molecular structure" to go with
    Customizability but need some simple template that has constraints to play with
  • next steps
  • Goals for October
    Test structures in different types of materials
    Wool
    Hemp
    Cotton rope
    Explore different computerized interfaces for building 2D patterns for 3D objects
    Research virus-based fabrics
