Reactive Surface  ||  2012
This piece allows the user to manipulate the flexible fabric surface through the interruption of a series of lasers that sit above the fabric plane. When the user interrupts the laser the corresponding photocell reads the changes and the micro-controller triggers the servos to draw the fabric back. An accompanying graphic animation is also triggered by the sensors. This is projected in the same zone as the deformation of the fabric surface.
