The BioShirt was a project done for a design class taught at the Gallatin School of Individualized Studies at NYU. The goal of this project was to create a shirt representing a particular design principle while using the material of one shirt. The BioShirt is meant to represent the deformation. To show this design principle, Maria tore up a shirt into small pieces and mixed them into an algae and gelatin mixture. The resulting product was the biofabric used to make the new shirt.
