Bio-Mimicry: Mechanical Monsters

Bilingual Croatian-English drawing & design workshop, educator: Johnathan A. Roberts

What do snakes, flowers, cockroaches and butterflies have in common? These wonderful creatures of the natural world have all inspired modern inventions. Scientists and engineers today are finally catching up with the work that visionary artists have been doing for hundreds of years: taking advantage of nature’s 3.8 billion years of trial-and-error problem solving “research” by adapting evolutionary designs to solve our problems. Artist Johnathan A. Roberts will lead an exploration of the amazing science and art of bio-mimicry in this hands-on workshop.
