suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
carlos MONCADA: NaiVe is a synthetic ecology which emerged by the relationship between nature and technology from concept to actual product. The analysis and understanding of specific living systems behavior and morphology through simulations,variables and new data bases interpretation, allowed the creation of new environments with similar geometrical processes and configurations.
NaiVe is an installation focused on experimentation, digital fabrication, physical computing and interaction in order to produce new forms, boundaries, textures and colors as language of coexistence inside space.
The user and NaiVe experience shift the environment into a new reality through the re-interpreting of elements from nature aesthetic and space. This project was constructed by using new technologies focused on collecting, transforming and materializing data into a architectural project.
