Jessica Rosenkrantz

Jessica Rosenkrantz graduated from MIT in 2005 and holds degrees in Architecture and Biology. Afterwards, she spent 2.5 years studying architecture at the Harvard Graduate School of Design.

Nervous System is a design studio founded in 2007 by Jessica 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.

Session: Growing Objects: Merging Digital and Physical

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.
