German artists Vera Hausmann, Till Maria Jürgens and Vitus Schuhwerk used an Arduino and servo motors to create a thin metal sheet that senses adjacent movement and reacts to it by crumpling more or less depending on the user’s touch.
@><#!!! – The life of an overtaxed surface, consisting of a thin metal coated foil, is transformed with invisible string connected to servo-motors and an arduino board, which senses, if somebody comes close. Through squeezing and releasing, the flat motion turns into a spatial transformation and comes closer to the user. This resulting surface dynamically generates new patterns. The intensity of expression is determined by the user’s interaction.
