Prototyping as a means of research

Prototyping is a way of creating knowledge and there are different roles we can take.

 

In other words, this is the process of Designing through research.

The role used for these explorations consisted in prototyping right away and not forseeing the material process.

The discoveries resulting from the exploration helped me to understand the behaviur and possibilities of the material  at the time, 

it first started with a syringe and the strenght my body was capable of giving,

and finally, after several prototypes , a consistent hollow cyinder could be 3D printed in a machine!
