Jessica will dissect her attempts to mash-up biology, architecture, computer science and fashion. From futuristic dresses generated from body scans and made entirely by robots to algorithmic studies of mutant plants and coral. This talk will take your through some of the projects she has created over the last 9 years at her design studio, Nervous System, while examining the possibilities and challenges of digital fabrication and raising questions about the future of design, fashion and manufacturing.


An exploration of the intersection of art, science and technology where generative design and digital fabrication are changing the way we create
