2. 9. – 7. 9.
Akira Nakayasu (JP)

After his first work, a sunflower-shaped robot called „Himawari“ (2008), artist and visual designer Akira Nakayasu continued his research in the field of robotic plants. His latest worked, simply called „plant“, is an interactive installation inspired by the vision of grass blowing in the wind. The robotic plant has 169 artificial leaves, which are controlled by using shape memory alloy actuators. Each leaf reacts independently to movement like an approaching hand by moving slowly in the virtual wind.
