Ensemble, puts together its first collaborative project, this sister group of Rusty Squid, crosses the boundaries of art, design and engineering. Creating a new winged form in the world of robotics and art.
An upturned mechanical moth, responsive to the actions of its handler, it plays with both our instinctual empathy with the vulnerable and our internal intrigue in insects. This basketball size creature invites its viewer to pick it up, pass it around. The moth’s interaction increases through this handling and its wings will gradually unfold.
Combining the aesthetic beauty of paper folding, printing and casting, with robotics to create this digitally refined piece. Working with the internal need to protect and aid vulnerable beings, and Inspired by the true form of moths, this vulnerability affects how it is handled. Exposed mechanisms and paper wings accentuate this idea and bring the world of robotics on display in an open, tangible and accessible form.
