Hyundai Motor Group and Rhode Island School of Design or RISD, announced a research collaboration exploring new relationships between advanced technologies, public environments and personal experiences.
These interactions are defined as “adaptive ecologies”: the technological interfaces that exist between beings… such as living organisms and machines, and their surroundings, the vast spatial and material structures of nature.
These areas were explored by RISD students and faculty and Hyundai researchers
The joint study examines how artists and designers can use technology to build connections and shared experiences, covering topics ranging from community design and biomimicry, cellular life and biosensing to natural resource systems and infrastructures.
