3D Printed Bio Tile


This tile explores how to translate an abstract naturally occurring phenomenon into a physical form. Bioluminescence creates beautiful illuminated patterns in ocean water. It was inspired by my love for coral reefs.



The graphics on this tile were designed to communicate and embody bioluminescence that occurs on shore lines from plankton.



To create this tile, I abstracted bioluminescence into a graphic pattern, then gave it 3D form with CAD modeling. It was then 3D printed in alumide.
