Inspired by biological structures such as the silica skeletons.
The attention was focused on unicellular organism known as Diatoms. These microalgae have a structure that resemble a Voronoi diagram which is quite common in today's generative design topology.
Diatoms also produce 50% of the air we breathe, removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere. The CO2 is then converted to organic carbon in the form of sugar, and oxygen (O2) is released. Basically, we breathe the oxygen that Diatoms release.
Produced using the additive manufacturing process (FDM) using only bio-plastic made from corn starch.
This sculpture investigates the relationship between the beauty of biological structures and the beauty of human-made objects.
