HuMatLab joined with Penn State’s Spatial Æffect Lab to develop the prototype “Habit@” (i.e., habitat), as part of the Driving the Human art-science initiative coordinated by acatech, the German National Academy of Science and Engineering, Forecast, Karlsruhe University of Arts and Design, and ZKM | Center for Art and Media Karlsruhe, with support from the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Radialsystem, Berlin, Germany. (April 9, 2021 – October 17, 2021). First public installation of fully digitally-fabricated fufuzela (v.2.0, CNC-routed laminated bamboo) and interactive fufuzela skin. “Driving the Human is a catalyst for experimentation, shaping sustainable and collective futures that combine science, technology, and the arts in a transdisciplinary and collaborative approach.” Project overview:
