Wind Drawing Machine
In a setting where a focal structure follows a pattern of motion governed by code, influence of external force adds relational complexity. This is a machine designed to draw. Two movements generate the drawing. The movement of the holding structure and wind.
The main structure holding the pens is controlled by an Arduino code. It is flanked by two fans that simultaneously emit wind setting the pens to spinning and waving motion. The spinning motion is made possible by paper propellers folded around the pens.
This complex dialog among the different elements: main structure, Arduino, fans, wind, propellers, pens, paper and line drawing creates a dynamic machinic environment ready to receive urban data to draw the beginning of what can become an active public space.
