Transforming public spaces into off-the-wall digital art museums.
Biomimetics is the study and invention of synthetic materials or objects that take inspiration from natural (or biological) forms and movements. Today, this approach is widely used in design. In this selection, our digital artists, who often come from deisgn backgrounds and are heavily inspired by the world around them, also demonstrate an interest in biomimetics. Whether the artist takes inspiration from real-life flora and fauna to imagine a cyborg flower, digitise nature as a form of archiving and remembrance, or embed cities and gardens into rock formations, this body of work demonstrates the relationships between biological and natural forms, and technological innovation in art.
