M6_Towards the Final Design

The departure point of the project is to create an interactive installation, that would have a certain behavior that would vary depending on external factors like the distance of the viewer or the intensity of sunlight. Each group conduced a series of explorations, in order to further investigate the properties of the materials. The decision was met to combine the electroluminescent foils and the Dye sensitized solar cells in an origami based surface, while the bioplastic group would develop the structural system of the installation. As far as the electoactive polymer elements are concerned, after further experiments concerning the material and the thickness of the frame,the initial wish of having them moving parts of the origami surface proved not realistic as the performance of the material could not allow it.  Consequently,  the design team proposed to array them on the ground level in order to form a “moving” landscape.
