Arish (palm-leaf), a natural and local material in the United Arab Emirates, is the primary material of investigation in this project. Arishpods attempts to revisit the use of Arish within the context of digital fabrication technologies. 

Arishpods provides a subtle and intimate social space within a more open field. The proposal can also be conceived of as a larger construct through the aggregation of multiple objects within a landscape.
