CoSprout
This project seeks to illustrate how people can more closely interact with nature by providing them with intimate experiences in the natural environment. The idea stemmed from seeing how people grow their fruit and vegetable for their own consumption, and realizing that through this act they became environmentally conscious and value their food more. To analogize this relationship-building process, I decided to explore how to empower people to "grow" their own product.

CoSprout is a machine that builds a beeswax spoon and makes the shape of spoon based on the present light source: The spoon will 'grow' towards the light sources, just like how many plants do. Also, the machine is rotatable so that people could adjust the result based on their preference, just as people tend their plants to harvest more. Through the casting process, people can turn their unique moments into permanent metal tableware.
