poetic aesthetic machine

most of all i really appreciate to Tim and Mark and people who participate in this workshop,

it was super nice times and atmosphere to me ,

actually, at first i would like to hide some technical things , i would like to left just really simple movement at machine, and i hoped people concentrate beautiful mood in machine not technical things , that’s why i used candle, and bicycle wheel (i think these are very beautiful,*)

anyway, at last, i made water switch which can control of electricity status, it was very nice experiment , because i realized even very simple technic which i learned at elementary school can be nice interactive source.

(the water switch principle _ i installed long green pipe and i blocked both side of pipe for making water not leaked and put saltwater in it , and i install this pipe on the wood board which can have angle by small metal pipe which installed under the wood board as 90degree turn from wood board. when people step on this wood board this board can change the angle and water  flow according to low direction and this water touch +and – electronic and then this electricity change the switch that can change  motor’s direction)

and at first i want to make my own candles ( shape of skull, macbook, building, woman arm, animal and ect, which n can make people feel creepy)  for make them rotate according to wheel’s movement but i couldn’t resolve it in proper time.

but this wheel which i installed was quite fastly moved than i thought,

and then make me scare when this start move, even my friend described it as  beast, i was quite shocked

this is video of poetic aesthetic machine

aesthetic and poetic robot

<This machine was inspired by dreaming about gear ratios and considering the unexpected implications of exponential powers.>

i want to focus on invaluable mecine,

these robot’s way of action is very simple and have no function at the same time,

i think at the same time  i realize aesthetic facet of robot.

and if one put only simple movement to object, kinds of only rotate or go up and down, or go back and front,

these movement  invented quite different and special mood about  things that being regarded as common,

this is shrimp’s movement

interested thing is if some construction make movement like endless rotate, but this movement result in tickling of needle or going up and down,

i would like to use this physical principle at workshop.

and from here explain about my idea,

most of all, i interest about physical movement of machine

(i have drawing about it but i don’t know how to attach it, so  i will show it at offline meeting 😀 )

my plan is make some rotation machine,

and make some plat boards , it would be 5 -6 board, and i will put some candle light on it,

and let it rotate according to the circle shape of construction which would be installed at wall,

However i should calculate how this candle lights are  sustained without rotation according to the direction of rotation,

i mean , candle should keep fire on it,  so i need to fix fire on upper direction even the construction rotate,
