|gift idea 3.0: subdivision cuff $50 – view
inspired by the complex forms of radiolarians, where intricate pattern is integral to structure, these shapes derive from a simulation of spring meshes enclosing an interstitial space. interactive software is used to morph, twist, and subdivide each design, transforming a simple mesh to a complex patterned structure. the c-shaped, flexible design fits close to the skin, is light-weight, and uses minimal material. the final product is built up layer by layer in durable nylon plastic using selective laser sintering, a kind of 3d printing.
