“Photodermis” is a theoretical-scientific, experimental and speculative research, which proposes a Renewable Energy System that is biodegradable, 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” is shaped by imaginative, controversial and inspiring qualities. The proposal projects a provocative future in which an incipient technology, based on Dye Sensitized Solar Cells, addresses the collective commitment to eco-social change. Thus, future avenues of research are opened, while questions are generated that act as catalysts towards a technological and social rethinking.
