Growing Flower

This project was inspired by the work of David Roy, a kinetic sculpture artist who works primarily with wood. I was particularly drawn to David’s Deja Vu project which uses a simple pattern to create the illusion of growing and shrinking flowers. I decided to use a motor to experiment with a similar pattern. The result of this experiment is shown in the following images. In the future I would like to create some sort of wall with many flowers and incorporate an interactive component in order for someone to control the growing and shrinking of the pattern. The Arduino and javaScript code for this project can be found at these links.
