Studies in MIT Media Lab’s Mediated Matter group have led to a silkworm-created structure reminiscent of a geodesic dome. After researching the behaviors and patterns of silkworms, the group created a CNC program based on their findings which wove together a base frame with overlapping threads. 6500 silkworms were then released onto the structure and guided with light to reinforce the form, covering it with silk. See the incredible process video here.
