Blog . Cell Cycle Jewelry Design
Nervous System is a company that has been interesting to follow. All of their work uses mathematics and programming to create surprisingly smooth and organic shapes for jewelry and housewares, and they've always been on the forefront of using new technology in design and production. Their newest app, "Cell Cycle", designs super organic mesh jewelry in the shape of toruses (that's doughnuts, for the geometrically disinclined). While it isn't available to the public, the videos are still quite interesting. The ease and flow with which a unique design comes forth is quite stunning. and so is the jewelry that comes from it. The algorithm used in this jewelry design software is actually quite beautiful on its own, reminiscent of Cell Division, much like the name implies. For anyone wanting a cell cycle ring or bracelet of their own, the app is not available for general use. But a web based applett is available to play with at http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/cellCycle/index.php. Just watch out, they can get quite expensive quite fast! Nervous System's other work can be found at http://n-e-r-v-o-u-s.com/index.php, or their work is currently available for sale at Cleveland's very own MOCA.
