Geode as a naturally formed
Geode as an aggregation of crystals
Geode as a result of humans manipulations
Studio Nucleo inverts the fossilization process creating a crossover between past and present. The Potash Alum is well known since AD77 (Pliny the Helder was quoting in Natural History on the 52nd chapter of his 35th book), and 3D printing technology is supposed to move us into the third industrial revolution.
The 3D printed part is the foreign solid that will serve as the starting point for forming the crystal that is growing extroflexed.
The frame reduced at the minimal terms is made by modular joints and pipes that create infinite geometric structures.
The mutual interaction between the two different materials creates different solid objects as an experiment on a new aesthetic form.
Each piece is unique and has an indeterminate shape.
