3D Printed Fractal LED Motor

The light's ceramic 3d printed shell is modelled using an ever decreasing repeated pattern, these fractal dimensions reserve self-similarity across scale, where at any magnification there is a smaller piece of the object only being restricted through it's entire form. When air passes over it the light freely rotates picking up speed as a result of it's weight,
The movement rotates a motor which creates a current using a joule thief circuit to light up a cluster of LED'S. There is no battery.

Electric Coral Reef

steel frame connected to electrical cable that is attached to floating solar panels on the water surface. Small bits of natural coral are attached to this steel frame in order to generate further growth. This electrical current is low enough for divers to swim around the structure but strong enough to create an electric field around the frame which condenses dissolved calcium carbonate out of seawater and attaches itself to the steel frame in order to build the limestone skeleton

Designer: margot krasojevic (United Kingdom)

Floating Realities Art Museum

The art museum design attempts to choreograph images and views into the city in an attempt to highlight the ever expanding definition of what is considered real, the design dilutes the edges between the viewer and the virtual by creating a creating a collaged effect of the building within it's context. A superimposed perception of context and design.

3d printed Ceramic Air Turbine Light

This 3d printed light acts as a vertical axis wind turbine. The form of the light uses the properties of aerodynamics to behave like a wind propeller, in principal the design is inspired by the Ropatec wind rotor. The ceramic body of the light is attached to a vertical axis which turns a diode rotor that transforms the movement into light. This 3d printed shell traps wind which rotates the axis in turn generating and transforming energy into light.

Fractal Dimension

The Tower, the imagined/subjectively perceived space is translated and continually morphed as a result of the surface renderings and reflections, whose boundaries and physical transitions are non-static, thus creating a dynamic series of dimensions. The reflecting surfaces have a Hausdorff dimension12 greater than its topological dimension, with the aim of presenting an infinite number of geometric iterations of an infinite length while the area remains finite.
