In our first class meeting (Monday 1/13/20) we started with the Strandbeest bicycle video and did a little critique of it. The walking mechanism was derived from Theo Jansen’s work. Then we went over the syllabus and the initial assignments.
Here’s an example of upcycling that I didn’t get to show. t’s a giant ball bristling in old toothbrushes. This was one of my favorite sculptures I saw at Burning Man in 2014.
