    suckerPUNCH: describe your project.

    kerem AKIN / curime BATLINER / oliver b. LIAO / stephan SOBL: This is a continuation from last semester of the advanced X program at SCI-arc, with more of an emphasis on emergent materials and robotics for free form fabrication at varying scales from small to large crossing over to possible construction methods over computational scripting. A fictional but reality driven experimental CELL as a testing ground and simulator was designed to fit inside a space within SCI-arc, by the woodshop in particular, for robotic operations, experimentation, and production.



    In particular, our group’s research was grounded on rheological materials which lead to a concentration on metal foam and the precision found in nozzle controls and design with technologies of supercooling which lead to simulated animations as a form of representation with the intent of opening discussions relevant to free form fabrication. Earth was a testing ground along with extreme environmental conditions found in the ocean, outer space, and eventually the moon. The site on the moon is actually a real site caused by a collapsed lava tube has been speculated by scientists to serve as a shelter for a future moon colony. A fictional narrative was eventually constructed in a documentary style for the final presentation to parallel a reality of what may possibly become.
