Deep Space 8K: Media Wall Nexus

Media Wall Nexus is community forming public art project of Nanyang Technological University (NTU) Art & Heritage Museum, Singapore. It explores new terrains to enhance digital interactive media and fine-art expressions


bioLogic is growing living actuators and synthesizing responsive bio-skin in the era where bio is the new interface. Natto bacteria are harvested in a bio lab, assembled by a micron-resolution bio-printing system, and transformed into responsive fashion, a “Second Skin”.


Lift-Bit is a modular, digitally reconfigurable furni- ture system that allows a sofa to seamlessly turn into a chair, a chaise longue, a bed, a complete lounge and a myriad of other configurations.


Lines have several interesting characteristics from the perspective of interaction design: abstractness of data representation; a variety of inherent interactions; and constraints as boundaries or borderlines.


SandScape is a tangible interface for designing and understanding landscapes through a variety of computational simulations using sand. Users view these simulations as they are projected on the surface of a sand model that represents the terrain.


musicBottles is an interactive installation for visitors to interact with soundwaves encapsulated in bottles. The installation consists of a set of bottle that encapsulate sounds from Boston, Cambridge and the MIT neighborhood.

Hy-Fi: Reinventing the brick for a low-carbon, compostable structure

The Living
Hy-Fi offers a captivating physical environment and a new paradigm for sustainable architecture. In this project we tested and refined a new low-energy building material, manufactured 10,000 compostable bricks, constructed a 13-meter-high tower, hosted public cultural events for three months, dismantled the structure, composted the bricks, and returned the resulting soil to local community gardens.


Floraform is a generative design system inspired by the biomechanics of growing leaves and blooming flowers which explores the development of surfaces through differential growth. We created a simulation of a differentially growing elastic surface that functions as a digital garden. Within the system, we can explore how biological systems create form by varying growth rates through space and time. Many of these experiments have been materialized as 3D-printed sculptures and wearable adornments.

Bionic Partition: Generative Design for Aerospace

The Bionic Partition is the world’s largest metal 3D printed airplane component. This component – created through a pioneering combination of generative design, 3D printing, and advanced material – is almost 50 percent lighter than current designs, and it is also stronger. This weight savings translates to fuel savings and carbon reduction.
