A glimpse of how our future is being created – Designer and architect Neri Oxman is leading the search for ways in which digital fabrication technologies can interact with the biological world. Working at the intersection of computational design, additive manufacturing, materials engineering and synthetic biology, her lab is pioneering a new age of symbiosis between microorganisms, our bodies, our products and even our buildings.
We human beings have a strong need to be individual whilst at the same time feeling connected to others. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why social media is such a success, it allows us to casually keep up to speed on what is happening, deep dive when something grabs our attention and remain distant when we want our individual space. In the beginning we linked with those we wanted to feel connected to and searched for information that we thought would be of interest and value. Today stuff finds us! – Social media is powerful, it is alive, evolving and it is growing!
