Self directed Project
For my self directed project i have decided to look at the decadence formerly found in design and the inspirations behind this style of design such as art nouveau. I have also decided to look into Bio-mimicry but not the complete replication of natures design but more the replication of natures behavior such as the struggle that plants have for the occupation of space and how conditions and terrain dictate the movements of plants/fungi.
I have chose plants and fungi because of the way they can occupy and survive in extremely odd places but i have chose to look at plants and fungi because to me the way they can cover and encase spaces and objects has a striking resemblance to the way that Georgian ornate designs cover spaces and objects.
