Nervous System

Somerville, MA, USA
Nervous System is a generative design studio that works at the intersection of science, art, and technology. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, we write computer programs that can generate an infinite range of designs. find out more at http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com

Branch

collection

Inspired by the branching forms of plants and algae, these patterns were generated by a self-repelling branching system. As our simulated trees grow, they bifurcate and colonize space.

Natural

collection

Clothing created from my photographs of natural patterns. I travel everywhere with camera in hand searching for strange yet beautiful phenomena that reveal how the world constructs itself. Pieces in this collection feature macro photographs of lichen, coral, leaf venation, sinter terraces, flower organization, insects, and fungi.

Reaction

collection

The Reaction collection features maze-like patterns of ripples and folds inspired by coral and sand-dunes. The forms were created in a design system we create that simulates reaction-diffusion on surfaces. Reaction-diffusion is a chemical signalling process that describes how stable patterns can emerge the diffusion and reaction of two or more chemicals. It can be used to explain the skin and shell patterns of many animals.
