WAVICS 1.0 is a sinergic project that is investigating material reactions to human behavior. It enables the audience to inflict a sinuous movement on the surface of a 70x50 cm elastic surface covered in 3312 straws without touching it.

All Lovely Stuff - DRAWING MACHINE 

London design brand creates cheap creative drawing machine with simple materials - video demonstration below:

A do-it-yourself way to make art! An oak cotton reel, peg, felt tip pen, rubber band and a small bit of wax is all that’s required to create this drawing machine that will inspire the Picasso in anyone. All materials are included in this self-assembly kit.

Obviously too late for Christmas, but more info to buy one can be found here

Dirt Poster is a Design and Graphic-Design work made by Roland Reiner Tiangco, a new graduate of a Design School, living in New York. While handling the poster, your hands starts to get dirty, and this dirt allows you to see what’s the poster is all about. Check out also the artist’s Website.

I love this project!!!! We made this out of a rubber rug and straws and it shows how interaction can become more about materiality than projections or plasma TVs. We can make this at any scale, with a wide range of materials in order to create spaces that keep transforming when used. We are pursuing this experiment further to see where it leads, with the help of the people that come and interact with it. 

DESCRIPTION

WAVICS is a sinergic project that is investigating material reactions to human behavior. It enables the audience to inflict a sinuous movement on the surface of a 62,5 x 40 cm surface made out of 3312 drinking straws, without touching it.

An elastic shape is deformed remotely through a smartphone interface. By moving a finger on the screen the user is indicating the place of the deformation and generating movement throughout the whole surface, as the coloured straws follow the form of the rubber surface.

The whole installation is controlled through an Arduino board connected to a Grasshopper definition which holds all the instructions, constraints and receives the data from the device they are connected to. The Arduino then tells the motors where to move the ball that deforms the surface.

malformalady:

Fasciated daisy — Fasciated stems are produced due to abnormal activity in the growing tip of the plant.  Often an abnormal number of flowers are produced on affected stems. Normal branches may arise from fasciated stems. Fasciation is unpredictable and is usually limited to a single stem. It seldom recurs the following year.

The Fixer’s Manifesto
Fixing is the unsung hero of creativity. And it really shouldn’t be. It’s the most common, humble and beautiful form of creativity. Let’s wear that belief proudly. Let’s notice and celebrate these little everyday triumphs, and help others see their value. We made this to fuel the conversation about why a culture of fixing is so important.
