Biomimicry is this month’s theme
Nature is efficient. Designers, engineers and artists who look to nature’s ingenuity for alternative physical constructs or methodologies are utilizing biometrics, also known as biomimicry.
If you haven’t ever heard of this concept, you’re in good company. The enquiry of this ageless practice is gaining recognition as it consistently solves many complex human problems, and only lately has been given a name that encapsulates a process that requires intense understanding an appreciation for the natural world that surrounds all of us.
Kim Landsbergen will kindly introduce us to biomimicry before Amy Youngs will present an overview of an art/biology class she co-taught with plant cell biologist Iris Meier.
