Published on

Using structures inspired by viruses and
their analogues, virus-like particles,
Crystallized aims to reinterpret the
beauty and evolutionary power of the
virus world within the constraints of
wearable media.

Crystallized explores the structural forms
of biologically protective particles in
vaccines as an analogy for clothing’s
fundamental role as protective architecture.

Crystallized

  1. 1. Crystallized Hybrid Worlds: Nano+Bio+Art Victoria Vesna | Siddarth Ramakrishnan Katherine Lee MFADT candidate 2010
  2. 2. abstract Crystallized seeks to apply the logic and elegance of natural systems to wearables, exploring the structural relationships that emerge through relating viral forms to wearable objects. Using structures inspired by viruses, Crystallized aims to reinterpret the beauty and evolutionary robustness of the virus world within the constraints of wearable media.
  3. 3. concept Virology is a source of well-validated structures & shapes. These architectural forms can be deconstructed or abstracted to create novel wearables and explore unprecedented applications.
