Noa Mori

Hi, I’m Noa (she/they). I’m an artist, writer, designer, researcher, synthetic biologist, and organizer. I’m fascinated by urban political ecologies, socio-technical-ecological systems, and futurist animisms. I dream of expansive futures not flattened by a colonial conception of the future as a fixed destination to be controlled.

I am a lo-fi bedroom-synth pop producer and a bioplastic designer/engineer/environmental strategist.

You can reach me by email, and find me on instagram and are.na.

Rigid Shelter

A prototype for a rigid, collapsible, deployable origami shelter, combining methods used by Hoberman Spheres, Miura origami folds used in deployable satellite design, and umbrellas. We wrote a MATLAB script to perform angle and length calculations for our crease pattern. As a proof of concept, we constructed a 1 meter diameter shelter using acrylic and vinyl.
