Decoding Plants: Using Art and Design as Powerful Scientific Tools
Tim Savas |
• November 2017
Stationed at MIT Media Lab, Tim Savas mixes the liberal arts to further our understanding of how plants express their form and flavor. Creating stunning time lapse sequences of plant growth in a climate change research lab, and designing Mars-worthy robotic growth chambers for the future of farming, Tim challenges what biologists see––and taste––as data. Both a researcher and designer, Tim encourages a better world where photographers, engineers, and tool builders don’t just participate in science, but lead it.
