PROJECT: 1. Aspects of Her Life_Frank Cong (Drawing machine1)

Aspects of Her Life is an organism-controlled multi-dimensional painting machine. It utilizes two cameras to track a fish’s trajectory and then draws the projected traces respectively on three sides of the fish tank. While the fish’s behavior determines the painting outputs, the motion of the paintbrushes is influencing the fish in return, creating a dialogue between an organic life and a mechanical system.

PROJECT 2: Silkbot_Yiqi Zhou

The concept of our project is about developing the relationship between human and machines. The audience could interact with the drawing machine by typing the messages into the computer. The worm-shaped robot could become the receiver of the message and leave the Morse code on paper and the morse code is always considered to be related to the binary systems and computer technology so that the robot is translating the human’s language into machine’s.
