Computer Controlled Giant Bubble Machine #ArtTuesday

NewImage

No need to blow your own bubbles when you have your own steady and reliable computer controlled bubble maker. via instructables

The CNC bubble iris makes big soap bubbles in a new way, by weaving soapy strings together and apart with a motorized iris. It was designed to allow large soap bubbles to be made automatically with great repeatability, opening up new possibilities for art, science, and engineering with on-demand bubbles of controlled size and timing.

People respond to giant bubbles in wonderful ways. Swirling with colors, shiny and floating, bubbles reveal a microcosm of the surrounding world reflected on their surfaces. When larger bubbles fold and twist, buffeted by eddies, they distort in phenomenally interesting ways too, and can be thought of as airborn, irridescent, morphing fun-house mirrors. People are delighted and inspired by giant bubbles like nothing else. As light and insubstantial as they may be, materially, large soap bubbles carry an awesome payload of inspiration, beauty, and wonder.

In the following instructable, I share my experiences proceeding from the initial inspiration of this invention through a handful of early prototypes and mechanisms, culminating with the fanciest and most recent model, made during my Artist Residency at Autodesk’s Pier 9 dream-lab.
