The Nature of Innovation
Detroit, MI, 48202
As a boy in Australia, Jay Harman noticed that nature's
favorite form is the spiral.
From the shape of galaxies and hurricanes to how blood flows
through your veins to how water goes down a drain, this ancient
sacred form - the Golden Mean - has preoccupied a lineage from
indigenous peoples to Plato, Pythagoras, Descartes and Da Vinci.
Harman had the genius to apply nature's favorite form to industrial
design. Through starting numerous biomimicry firms and research conducted
for his acclaimed new book, The Shark's Paintbrush: Biomimicry and How
Nature Is Inspiring Innovation. He'll share inspiring examples of
companies and governments that are adopting biomimicry and how it teaches
us how to live in harmony with nature.
Local Communitry Representative is TBD
