Photodermis / Compostable energy system

Photodermis
Photodermis

Photodermis is a theoretical-scientific, experimental and speculative investigation that proposes a Renewable Energy System that is compostable, local and autonomous. The study focuses on the research area of Smart Inks, using them with the aim of creating a photosynthetic skin for the human body, which generates energy from light harvesting.
Based on rigorous analysis and research, Photodermis settles for imaginative, controversial and inspiring qualities. The proposal projects a provocative future in which an incipient technology, based on Dye-Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSC), addresses the collective commitment to eco-social change.
