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 />
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 />
challenges<br />Scalability<br />Can this be a small business?<br />Technical<br />Must build a friendlier interface than what’s out there now<br />Social assumptions about viruses<br />This concept doesn’t address genetic content of viruses, either the genetic material encased inside viruses, genetic variance, evolution, or mutations<br />
