Hinge Flow Networks
Conception of the interactions between medium (humidity) and matter (hydrogels) is studied simultaneously in a series of hypothetical study sketches and potential material developments. The sketches envision the correlation between humidity flows and flexible, responsive hydrogel compositional networks. This concept blends the rational components of hinges and networks with corresponding negative space in response to the interactive flows between humidity and hydrophilic polymers. The materials are in development for future physical constructs and empirical manifestations of the concept.
