How do you start a new sketchbook? I go for the obvious. Plus I returned to my dip-pen roots since I accidentally left my pen bag at a friends. Yikes!

A module is acquired before the birth of an individual. Over the span of their life, the data center located in their module records their social interactions over time. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As social interactions are processed, the servers adjust the color and intensity of the led foil in specified locations. These moments promote algae growth within the ethylene tetrafluoroethylene (ETFE).
A kinetic bio polymer facade is directly impacted by the regions of growth within the ETFE. The more social interaction an individual has, the more textured the facades of their module will be.
The modules are connected through a circulation system that not only carries an individual but the algae used to power the modules. The power generated by the algae through photosynthesis is harnessed by a power converter that supplies energy to a central generator.
