“Why couldn’t everyone have abstract patterns of their personal data fill their walls” Perhaps seeing the abstract patterns and rhythms of your self-tracking data is a short-cut to mindfulness. A quick and dirty way to boost your immune system, the benefits of meditation and self-reflection without much effort. Originally I imagined laser and 3D printing technology delivering physical tangible hand-made patterns directly to walls without the cost or intervention of an art gallery or even the artist. But I'm now captivated by bio-fabrication.
I think I found what might turn out to be an easier way....to fill the textured walls of your future 'tiny' apartment. GROW IT! Microbial cellulose that can form shapes and pattern, with little bits of color....and then when it gets wet, it RECYCLES. It's the perfect minimalist art-making material that is both physical and ephemeral. In 6 minutes Suzanne Lee shows what is possible. Very simply, we will grow our own art!
Made you curious??? Here are a whole bunch of projects in the bio-fabricate world, updated and pulled together by Biofabricate.co....just click!
