digital naturalism conference

Research
Gamboa, Panama, August 2019


The experimental, month-long Digital Naturalism Conference (DiNaCon) explores natural environments through technology. International scientists, technologists, and artists gathered in Gamboa, Panama to utilize a maker space in the jungle. Gamboa is marked with extreme biodiversity and, because of the Panama Canal, extreme human intervention. At DINACON, my research focused on the built environment of the biological research centers as life-support system. I began using modeling systems to design structures that combine architectural structure with organic form.
