Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg on biological car production #ArtTuesday

Alexandra Daisy Ginsberg on biological car production, from Dezeen:

Ginsberg’s idea is that, in a future of affordable and sustainable biodegradable materials, car production would become more localised and different design traits would emerge reflecting local climates, tastes and fashions.

“The first car would be the chassis that MINI would distribute, and there’d be a simple design for the shell of this car,” she explains. “You’d send out the design to different countries and different locations, and in each country you’d have workshops or small distributed manufacturing plants making cars out of local materials.”

“You start to see there are traits diversifying, mutating. The cars themselves aren’t evolving, but the decisions made by humans about the design of them is what is actually starting to show biological adaptation and mutation.”

Ginsberg is using different resins to produce her model cars, which she is customising with a variety of different shells.

“There are some that have got raincoats made out of latex, some of them are going to have little sun visors made out of wood,” she says. “It’s been really fun to be allowed to be very playful with the design language and make quite a lot of mess in the process.” ….

Screenshot 4 2 14 11 48 AMEvery Tuesday is Art Tuesday here at Adafruit! Today we celebrate artists and makers from around the world who are designing innovative and creative works using technology, science, electronics and more. You can start your own career as an artist today with Adafruit’s conductive paints, art-related electronics kits, LEDs, wearables, 3D printers and more! Make your most imaginative designs come to life with our helpful tutorials from the Adafruit Learning System. And don’t forget to check in every Art Tuesday for more artistic inspiration here on the Adafruit Blog!

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
