CRYO – Crystalize Your Objects

 Advisor: Gur Tal

“In my fantasy, every time I take a shoe out of the water it looks different, it surprises me, grows, and regenerates.”

The project examines the potential of growing crystals on wearable objects created in 3D printing – eyeglasses, shoes, and false nails. With the help of the printed structure, crystals grow in pre-determined areas. But just like in nature, each crystal grows in its own unique way. The home process of growing crystals turns the object into a personal and singular product.
