SWELL Smalls Gallery 2023 Artwork – Oystertecture: 3D Printed Bio-enhancing underwater habitats

The tridimensional forms of bio-enhancing underwater habitats, aim to reveal the complex topological configurations of oyster reefs. Through laser scanning, computational design, and additive fabrication, the artists create 3D structures that merge ecology, design and fabrication. By harmonizing art, nature, and technology, these habitats contribute to the preservation and enhancement of underwater ecosystems, fostering a sustainable coexistence.
