Sep '09 - Aug '10
On my desk are a number of things:
1 book by the philosopher Lacan which explains where the origins of serial killing behavior lie. This is for a paper on Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate sculpture.
13 kenetic sculptures in lacra which bloom open or closed as passers by pull and push the wires embedded within.
1 Arduino board, 4 working servos, 2 burnt out servos, 1 hacked power supply, 2 flex sensors and a tiny ‘zzzzzzzzzz’ sound as it does its thing. These will eventually be hooked up to the lacra sculptures
Trying to crawl up my desk is 1 light sensing robot that obviously feels my labtop screen is the preverbal light at the end of the tunnel.
It is fairly common to be confronted with such a diversity of objects at the DRL in the morning, all begging for attention and potentially dangerous to touch.
