resistance (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:



Crafted from 3D printed, CNC machined and laser-cut parts; "resistance" is time-based, interactive, mechatronic sculpture that emulates the articulated flapping of bird's wings. Several sets of these mechanical birds are mounted to a wall and, through various intensities of flapping, respond to the viewer's movements within the space. The objects simultaneously invite and intimidate with their graceful, fluid motion contrasted by the direct reactivity of their activation. This experience between the viewer and the piece translates a sense of separation - the birdlike machines act in opposition to the viewer's perceived freedom within the space. - Ryan Buyssens
