Grad­u­a­tion Project/ Awarded St.Joost medal for best grad­u­a­tion project.

The Ther­mophore is an arti­fi­cial organ­ism devel­oped by Tim for his grad­u­a­tion project.
Tim wanted to cre­ate an organ­ism that looked real and was alive. Alive? Every­thing that
we call alive is made up of thou­sands of com­plex chem­i­cal processes func­tion­ing as one
whole; an organ­ism. 
Tim ques­tioned; Is it pos­si­ble to con­trol or use at least 1 chem­i­cal
process to sug­gest that some­thing is alive? 
With this in mind the Ther­mophore was
even­tu­ally born. The Ther­mophore is an arti­fi­cial ‘plant-like’ organ­ism that changes it’s
color when react­ing to warmth. 
By absorb­ing heat, the Ther­mophore feeds itself with energy,
a beau­ti­ful visual process is put in motion that causes this organ­ism to change color.
When absorbed enough energy, the Ther­mophore slowly cools down return­ing to it’s orig­i­nal color.
