THE NEW CATALOG 2049


- Imagining A Fictional Creature Archive
 

The New Catalog 2049” draws inspiration from mollusks, aiming to imagine and mimic the fluid and organic movement of these creatures. By crafting silicone molds through 3D modeling, planning heating patterns on TPU-coated fabric, and employing physical computing with pneumatic mechanics, this biomimetic practice pushes the boundaries between the natural and artificial realms.


Apply fabric on top and bottom side of the silicone
Create bubbles on both side and a small curve
