Name, first nameSumegha MantriYear of birth1988UniversityECALField of Interest / research fieldProduct / Object DesignTitle of projectBiodesign - the design of life.AbstractBio-design is not design inspired from biology or biomimicry. It is the design of biology - where the tool is DNA itself. Synthetic biology is a fast evolving, exciting field today with scientists, biologists, engineers and designers involved.
Since Bio-design is relatively new, it is also quite fuzzy with undefined boundaries and possibilities. Through looking at examples I want to understand this world of Bio-design and see what it could mean for us as designers in the 21st century.
