Piece on display at Exposé! Video of it working to follow.

Here is the piece from Human + Computer! Some of the technical aspects still need working out, but it looks good. Laser-cut paper & vellum butterflies cling to a net made from gold-wire and cocoon-shaped freshwater pearls. A subtle black paper butterfly lace sits beneath the mesh.
Nitinol runs through a few of the butterflies, allowing their wings to “flap” according to an Arduino. This still requires some bug fixing, but we got it to work in the model, so I’m sure it’ll turn out in time for the show at Exposé.

I haven’t been making much jewelry lately, as I was on winter break and am currently having an insanely busy wintersession term. Part of that, however, is a super cool workshop series called "Human and Computer" involving RISD, Brown, and MIT.

My partner and I are working on a piece that will involve flapping butterflies, that move in response to text messages. Hopefully. I made these from paper and orange vellum, and my partner should be working on the mechanical mechanism. We’ll see how the crit goes tomorrow!
