Exhibitors 2015



Contemporary scientific and technological research are changing the way man relates to his body. Synthetic biology, advanced prosthetics, biohacking let imagine future scenarios of physical transformation and redefinition, aesthetic and performative.
In this direction, Carapace is a possible evolution of the human body in which rigid elements similar to crustaceans’ and insects’ exoscheletons integrate and transform sensory districts.
Starting from this vision CARAPACE PROJECT developed a serie of masks and accessories designed through generative design strategies and produced with 3D printing technologies.
