NEW PROJECT – Pulse by Nissan

Last year (2013) in May I had the chance to present this exciting project at Nissan Design Europe as part of the MA Textile Futures (now Material Futures) course. I wasn't able to upload it before because of the privacy agreement but finally here it is.

The name of the project was Emerging Cities / Emerging Trends and the idea was, as the name indicates, to explore the emerging behaviours and scenarios in cities that are now witnessing accelerated growth.

Fulfiling a personal fascination with spies I chose Moscow between three cities (Lagos, Nairobi and Moscow) and you can see the results here.

Enjoy!

 

El año pasado (2013) en mayo tuve la oportunidad de presentar este interesante proyecto en las oficinas de Nissan Design Europe como parte del MA Textile Futures (ahora Material Futures). No podía publicarlo antes por motivos de privacidad pero finalmente acá está.

El nombre del proyecto era Emerging Cities / Emerging Trends (Ciudades emergentes / Tendencias Emergentes) y la idea era, tal como el nombre lo indica, explorar los patrones de comportamiento y contextos emergentes en ciudades que presencian un crecimiento acelerado.

Satisfaciendo una fascinación personal con los espías escogí Moscú entre tres ciudades (Lagos, Nairobi y Moscú) y los resultados los pueden ver acá.

Espero lo disfruten.

IMMINENT BODY – Work in Progress video

This video shows the concept behind my project Imminent Body.

What if Artificial Intelligence becomes a reality in the mid future? We may be able to see it as part of our everyday objects and materials that we see today as "dumb" will transform into conscious entities.

I imagined textile manufacturing as an act of programming, where behaviours are mixed just as today is done with different features from different yarns.
