The jellyfish’s body does not have a brain, heart, bones, or eyes, but it is still able to react to nerve stimuli located in their tenticles. The mystery is how they are able to react without the necessary organs to process the information ie. the brain. Also jellyfish use a type of jet propulsion to make their way through the water. The largest jellyfish can grow tobe 8’ in diameter and be as long as half a football feild.

Typical spacestation assembly is done by a linear component system. Similar to MIR and Bigelow the newer pods get docked onto existing systems via a universal connection joint. These connections limit the aggregation of the components to a linear system.

CHAINMAIL Wanting to move away from the standard component assembly found in space I wanted to explore a more seemingly complex form of connections and linking. The art of chainmail came into mind. By interlinking each individual ring in a set pattern allows to you to take a standard unit and begins to let you aggregate linearly as well as in a planar direction.

Using the a chainlink methodology as a starting point I began to use a standard cube as a start for the aggregation.

In order to test out different methods of aggregation I started to manipulate the cube and began to subtrac edges from the initial cube.

Further subtractions of the cube faces were done to test more forms of aggrigations.

In this next study I connected 2 faces of 2 separate cubes to test the connectability of a multi directional link.

The last study I conducted was another connection between 2 separate cubes but this time connecting them with a vertical member.

PODCONNECTIONS

The link connections are seen as small concentrations of program with various branching sections for circulation. The idea is to create small private areas as well as large communal area’s for the grill as well as the space dock.
