Fluid-Thought

Fluid-Thought introduces a new language of 3D printing technology with beeswax. The new fabrication process is inspired by the natural intelligence of the material. The experimental cognitive research is focusing on the beeswax which is a sustainable, biodegradable and local material. Beeswax is the main actor in the process, the robotic arm plays the role of a tool, the water is a cooling and supporting element. Lack of support optimized material use in the process to the minimum. The material flow occurs in a closed circuit. It means the waste production is reduced to zero. High plasticity, low sourcing price and the possibility of functioning in an economic cycle without waste give to this material new perspective and bring new way of making things.
Barbara Drozdek is an intervention designer who has a love of nature, materials, design, new technology, old crafts techniques and advanced generative design. Her activities come from a deep interest in the area of producion and materials and adapting it to the effects of climate and social change. Her creative works are based on first-person perspective empirical research and use of new technologies on the edge of the analogue and the digital.
