Demonstrating how to create poetic interactive structures through hybridization of nature’s self-engineered forms. MACRO WOODEN VELCRO’s behaviour is inspired by the natural, physical, flexible structure of a pinecone combined with the hooks of a dandelion seed. Magnifying the observed microstructures into macro physical design features, illustrates the invisible energy surrounding us. Layers of veneer are combined with fabric reactive dyes and reflective surfaces to create objects that adapt to fluctuations in light, temperature and humidity.
