The multidisciplinary project 'Build like a shell' looks into the relationship to our building materials. What can we learn from biomineralizing organisms in how we secrete our houses, both at a material and an artistic level? For this art-design-science project I will dive deeper into material research, and conduct experiments in collaboration with De Onkruidenier and various other designers and scientists in the field of bio-inspired materials and biomineralization.

The project will be part of my residency at Waag society - Planet B. Build like a shell is supported by the AFK (Amsterdam Fund for the Arts).
