octupus inspiration

This image can give an idea of the surface texture on the bladders. I especially like the areas on the head. I don't know if it would become as intense as thoughs that spike out from the surface.

Stranding Interior Wall Structure

Here is the first try at stranding of the structure. A lot of things still need to be resolved but this is what I ended up after we broke off from our group session.

checking out a few of these websites I was looking at self-cleaning materials. This first site is all about a microscopic surface logic that allows for water to repel off. The second site is talking about self-cleaning glass, that works by breaking down any organic material.

on suckerpunch today, in terms of retaining water and creating an environment it looks like an interesting idea

Here is a different technique that we could use to create an exterior skin

Living Light


Phytoplankton live in the sunlit portions of the ocean and are capable of turning water and light energy from the sun into nutrients and oxygen through photosynthesis.

I thought this was interesting considering phytoplankton are single celled plant organisms, and I know we were talking about using a type of cellular structure in the skin designs.

This is exploring a further notion of the exoskeleton. I am just trying to take the mosquito idea and explore the potential for the exterior skin condition. There is the possibility of striated surface or a scale surface.
