MIT MEDIA LAB X SLOW FACTORY 1

MIT MEDIA LAB X SLOW FACTORY

2017  Céline Semaan, Slow Factory,

Read the full stroy here. Motivated by shared values and fueled by friendship, Slow Factory’s Céline Semaan and Neri Oxman of MIT Media Lab have embarked on a collaboration that features works of Oxman’s team rendered and archived on silk. The physical artifacts* include three works: Belzbub — a rubicund helmet-like structure (in collaboration with Joe Hicklin and Stratasys Ltd.); Monocoque 1 — a prototype structure whose outer skin is uniquely supportive; Fibonacci’s Mashrabiya — an earthy latticework revisiting the traditional Arabic typology through the lens of performance-based environmental design (in collaboration with Prof. W. Craig Carter and Stratasys Ltd). Beyond physical artwork, Oxman and Semaan believe in communicating the power of conversation through imagery. With photography by Noah Kalina, Semaan and Oxman span both environmental and social divides, and reimagine Nature’s role as an agent to inspire others with what Nature does best: growth.
