Bacterial living tissues operate in a symbiotic ecosystem with the external environment. How we can we draw inspiration from their behavior to design and manufacture body skins that can adjust to variations both in body internal processes and environmental data? This project literally grows a series of ‘body architectures’ investigating the use of bacteria cellulose in integration with synthetic 3D printed anatomies with the objective of developing a framework for architecture as an interface/extension of the human body. The methodology is implemented through bio fabrication processes and sensing technologies and biometrical and environmental sensors, heart rate, dermal and brain activity, air quality, temperature sensors among others were used.
