Current Exhibition:
DAS Community Building

This exhibition demonstrates more than innovations in digital design, fabrication techniques, materials research, and logistics control; it showcases students provoking the status quo in bringing their ideas to a built reality.

Hybridizing plant life within a digitally fabricated matrix, the Chlorophytum project explores synthetic methods to augment and showcase physiological processes within plants including capillary action, phototropism, thigmotropism, and diurnal behaviours. This room installation suspends an acrylic matrix containing a series of nutrient reservoirs which sustain a latticework of modest planting.

Within this environment, the plants' responses to the various stimuli in the room are highlighted via the use of black light.

The tesselation of plant and fabricated components atop visitors will prove to be an engaging piece that draws attention to the self-organizing systems at play in plant growth, but also investigates the dichotomy of natural and artificial.
