Responsive synthetic Nature made of Inflatable Soft Robotic Materials
1001 Flowers is a unique and immersive experience that allows visitors to explore an alternate ecosystem and engage with the complex interconnections of a synthetic nature.
It offers a toolkit of various components – petals, flowers and leaves made of silicone rubber with air rooms inflated or deflated using the FlowIO device – and asks the users to create their own composition of “human-made nature” with these components. Input from the users will be parameters that determine the status of these components – either inflated or deflated, lightened (by optical fibers casted within them) or not lightened.
