Nervous System is a design studio founded in 2007 by Jessica Rosenkrantz and Jesse Louis-Rosenberg. They work at the intersection of science, art, and technology, and create using a novel process that employs computer simulation to generate designs and digital fabrication to realize products. Drawing inspiration from natural phenomena, Jesse & Jessica write computer programs mimicking processes and patterns found in nature and use those programs to create unique and affordable art, jewelry, and housewares.
Jesse and Jessica will discuss Nervous System’s efforts to revolutionize product design through generative techniques, 3d-printing and web programming. Along the way, they will take several long detours into the realms of natural pattern formation, simulation, and math.
