Silk Pavilion

SILK PAVILION from Mediated Matter Group on Vimeo

MIT Media Lab Mediated Matter group directed by Neri Oxman created a Silk Pavilion by letting a robotic arm being helped out by 6500 live silkworms. The collaboration resulted in the Silk Pavilion that is part a research project aiming at exploring the relationship between digital and biological fabrication techniques, but also a piece of art that is hanging from the ceiling.
 






The first part in the process a robotic arm build the cocoon imitating the silkworms, then created 26 panels by depositing a kilometre-long silk fibre across flat polygonal metal frames, and finally the caterpillars arrived to finish the work. The team was constantly monitoring the silkworms by a tiny magnets attached to their heads. They followed their movements so they were able to notice some interesting things. For example, the worms were more willingly to work in darker areas. The team is actually highly concerned that natural processes could be more efficient than 3D printing in its current state.
