Futuristic 3D printed self-sufficiency caravan models bio-printing, synth bio and gengineering

Jonas Loh's Cruiser Charisma is a little 3D printed caravan inspired by "technological alteration of nature" and "intentional communities like the Amish."

The outcome of the project is a fantastical caravan, a nomadic module of illusionary freedom, which explores our belief in technological progress. This enabler questions our human desires for comfort and prosperity and illustrates the dream of total autarchy and the possibility of a different social, political and economical system.

The utopian idea of a different society on a micro scale is reinterpreted and brought in a contemporary context where existing and near future technologies as synthetic biology, genetic engineering, bio-printing and new form of production methods are made public to every individual rather than being owned, administrated and distributed by venture capitalists and politicians.
