Christian Faubel: Crystal Forming Robots on overhead



Taxt Taoyuan Art x Technology Festival "hello world"

Opening 6.10.17 Taoyuan Arts Center

The crystal forming robots are a physical simulation of a growth process, similar to the growth of crystal structures. Each robot operates autonomously and is driven by the light of the overhead projector. When a robot has collected enough energy through its solar panel, the energy is all released at once through a small motor and the robot will make a random movement. The robots are equipped with tiny magnets, so that when they come close while they are moving, they attract each other and dock together. Over time a crystal-like structure emerges from more and more little robots forming larger clusters.
