Design objects were previously shown at BioFabircate NY, and MaterFAD Barcelona. Materials and methods are part of a current effort to bridge science, technology, and art with design and fabrication of living material everyday products. Commissioned and supported in part by the Art and Science seed fund from the Office of the President at Tufts and the U.S. Office of Naval Research and performed in collaboration with the Center for Applied Brain and Cognitive Sciences.
