Molded is an exploration utilizing slime mold and swarming behavior to generate new forms. The crown was generated through slime mold logic in Grasshopper and Rhino. Twenty-one evenly distributed points were fed into Grasshopper, and the slime mold definition chose to create a crown complete with a place for a stone to be set. This slime mold project was calling out to adorn the body. It was printed out on an Ultimaker Printer as a crown and two cuffs.
Molded imagines a world where decomposers such as slime mold are cherished.
