*Group OSS by JJ and Fran
We redesigned the frame such that the syringes would be at the side and the ‘fleas’ would sit in the middle of the model. This way, it’s easier to operate the mechanism with swiping motions of the arms.
Making of Final Model
At this stage, Read more →
As mentioned in my previous post, I was assigned Forehead, while my partner Nok Wan was assigned hand. Individually, we researched on our body parts to study the movement of it. You may refer to Nok Wan’s post to take a look at her research process + prototype.
We wanted to create a piece that involved both body parts, hence, Read more →

‘ALTERNATING TRIPOD’ SYSTEM
I built my sketch models based off prior research about an ant’s movement, where they walk with alternating legs.
SKETCH MODEL 1
Thorax of an ant with all 6 legs.
The downside to this mechanism is that both sides of the wire have to be pulled in opposite directions at Read more →
The remora bestie: Charissa the Shark
In order to capture the sinusoidal motion of the remora, I needed to break down the body into portions to allow such movement. As such, making use of metal wires, I built up the skeleton of a fish part by part.
As the sinusoidal Read more →
