16-Ossis


This project explores a theoretical scenario in which emerging synthetic biology technologies are applied to the field of industrial design. Ossis is a series of objects made of artificially-grown bone tissue designed to analyze sampled DNA of organisms from the environment in order to create a new point of observation and visibility for biodiversity.
The technology of identification is based on the bone’s own DNA, and allows the sampling of biological information from the environment, decoding the DNA composition of organisms, and then displaying the information processed through a digital interface.

NOAM ATTIAS (B. 1982) holds a B.Des in Industrial Design from the Hadassah Academic College; and she is studying for a Master in Biotechnology at The Hebrew University of Jerusalem in correlation to future developments of her work Ossis. She works as Industrial Design and is a guide at the Jerusalem Bird Observatory. [PORTFOLIO]
