Client: Officina Corpuscoli
Officina Corpuscoli approached us with an unusual request: Could we create a tridimensional representation of a synthetic micro-organism that does not exist?
This sculpture represents a synthetic micro-organism with the ability to degrade plastic and transform it into biofuel. More than 100 single elements where individually made, adjusted and attached into a general structure that could support itself.
The result was a high tech multi-material 3D printed sculpture. This object was exhibited at the Netherland's Natural History Museum, in January 2012 as part of “System Simthetics”, Officina Corpuscoli’s project developed for D&A4GA.
Concept by Maurizio Montalti.
