Introduction: The Cocoon
"The cocoon is a fragile environmentally interactive robot. It represents the contrasts and connections between technology & nature."
this was my year 11 art assignment from high school. The project outline was to create a work that represented a local island (stradbroke island), but as usual i took it way out of context and ended up building a tethered robot out of balsa wood.
i should also mention that there is no microcontroller/programmed electronics in use. everything relays on simple circuitry and relays.
