Nervous System creates folium algorithmic jewelry

Nervous System creates folium algorithmic jewelry

Folium is a new generative jewelry series by nervous system that is based on the algorithmic structures of plants and algae. each piece is one of a kind, a specimen of a new hypothetical plant species. free from the constraints of biology and physics, the designs can exhibit forms and patterns impossible in nature. they are constructed from a multistage digital growth process using I-systems, which are used to model recursive branching structures, like those seen in trees, and also spatial colonization algorithms. this process yields diverse results both in overall shape and texture. each specimen demonstrates a unique and dynamic interplay between its outer and inner growth systems with the result that no two shapes or patterns are alike. folia are available as necklaces and earrings. each item is photochemically etched from a thin sheet of stainless steel and measures approximately 2 x 2 inches.

The range of folium pendants have natural variations that are generated form families of patterns.
