Gizmodo's 3D Printing Week, a collaborative project with GE that comes to a close this evening, would only be partially complete without a look at the use of animals as living 3D printers.
There are challenges to making art in any medium, and with sand the issue is clearly accuracy. How do you keep everything in place while you're working?
Destin over at SmarterEveryDay wanted to take an up-close look at the nanostructure of a butterfly's wing, so he took a few samples to be looked at under a scanning electron microscope. The results are fascinatingly beautiful.
In a sweeping review of the field of bio-inspired engineering and biomimicry in the Feb. 15 issue of the journal Science, two engineers at the University of California, San Diego, identify three characteristics of biological materials that they believe engineers would do well to emulate in man-made materials: light weight, toughness and strength.
Digital artist and interaction designer Daniel Brown continues to tweak and evolve his eye-popping series of computer-generated flowers, this time around commissioned by the Art Fund's RENEW program for exhibition at the D'Arcy Thompson Zoology...
"We are a generation of architects that is more than human: we are augmented. We spend our days with things we can’t see, taste, touch, or smell. As designers, we operate as filters or search engines. We generate and enumerate possibilities, and encode and decode the results: we are code breakers and cryptographers. Giving form to the immaterial, we speak the language of our machines. We teach them to speak for us; our machines learn new languages through us and together we shape a new world. Are we getting farther from human? Are we becoming artificial? Sure, but it is artificiality that is the core of humanity: we have always been toolmakers and we have always been augmented. We have always been beyond human—we have evolved with our tools. This heightened dependency makes us more vulnerable than ever. Doesn’t that make us even more human, to be incorporated into a machine? We are not celebrating the rationality of a new machine. This is no new modernism. Computation is a celebration of the fragility and complexity of our own humanness, our own “personness.”"
