Nature is the greatest design. Everything we create is inspired by something that exists around us. There are few species of plants and flowers physically and instantly react to us, which build a stronger connection between us and nature. Interactivity is primal and specially important these days. Building connections through interactivity is the prime goal of this installation.
This prototype is of a flower that reacts to touch by opening and closing, much like the ‘touch-me-not’ plant. The has been made using textiles and plastic parts. The mechanism uses a servo, string, rubber ball and pins for the lever system and an arduino to bring them to life.

Filed under wearables because of the canny use of conductive thread; filed under ‘art’ because it’s lovely!
