My graduate thesis project was to create a third
robotic typography sculpture, and to think about the
three pieces as one large project. I documented my
design process and created many physical prototypes.
You type a character to this single-letter sign with a mobile device,
AIM, or the web, and it responds by forming the approximate
typographic shape through contorting a thin white ribbon. In the
following video, the cover has been removed from the installation,
exposing the insides for fu...
This robotic worm moves around and bows at who ever gets close to it. The piece was received by the audience as a strange pet. No artificial
intelligence was involved, but people grew attached to the unpredictable personality, controlled by the unpredictable factors in my camera vision
As you press keys on the keyboard, six wooden "brush
strokes" shift into place, forming the character most recently

Interfaces to existing interactive installations can be altered by building additional technology on top of them. This motorized arm
