Morphfaux, KUKA Robot Plaster Research
Role: Research Assistant
Entity: Taubman Architecture at University of Michigan
Location: Ann Arbor, MI
Skills Used: Design Research, Rhinoscripting, Grasshopper (3D modeling Software), Arduino Control of Stepper Motors
Off and on in 2011 and 2012 I aided Joshua Bard, a professor within the University of Michigan's Architecture school, currently a professor at Carnegie Mellon. The Morphfaux titled project was meant to explore methods in which plaster could be enhanced through modern fabrication techniques. My primary input was through attempted scripting and then machine control of a moving head for the KUKA robot, for laying plaster.
