Philip Beesley is a Toronto-based architect and sculptor who creates extraordinary cybernetic systems.

"Implant Matrix is an interactive geotextile that could be used for reinforcing landscapes and buildings of the future. The matrix is capable of mechanical empathy. A network of mechanisms react to human occupants as erotic prey."

The matrix is comprised of a lightweight structural system with sensors, shape-memory alloy wire actuators and distributed microprocessors.
