Man is defined as a human being and woman as a female – whenever she behaves as a human being she is said to imitate the male.

Leaf prints with smart paint


Printing the leaves worked best painting a thin layer of the paint over the back of the leaf. Once in position on the paper or fabric, cover with a thin cloth or paper towel and use a print roller to press it down firmly. 

We were using thermochromic (heat sensitive paint) as well as glow in the dark paint,  so the prints respond to heat and light.. more pictures to follow

A cellular interactive skin using a memory alloy, that retracts when a charge is applied to the surface.  The ‘muscle wire’ is created from a nickel-titanium alloy.  
The bees in my hive need to be able to enter and leave the nest 24hours a day, while maintaining the ‘climate scenario’ in the nest.  This type of material could surround the exterior of the structure and react to the electrostatic charge that the bees create when the move their wings and from the hairs on their body.  
Tomorrow I am going to speak to the electronics department at the university regarding creating my own interactive facade that adjusts with the bees movement in and out of the nest.

Phototrope constantly measures ambient light: the more light there is, the stronger and higher…
