this project was presented on Jerusalem design week 2018
me and my team mates have designed , constructed and program this art installations to work synchronous with each other
we used stepper motor and drivers to operate the opening and closing of flowers
besides this flowers had the interactive features, so when person was approaching it , flower was reacting by gently closing and opening
Manufacturing process – vacuum forming
3D printing with nylon for prototyping
Project name : DON’T FORGET
Digital communications enables cheap long-distance connections and digital computation enables cheap, universal and efficient computers.
Digital fabrication enables cheap, efficient and universal fabrication.
Building digitally will reduce the complexity of the assembling and can produce a wider variety of objects for a smaller cost.

New digital fabrication technologies have completely changed how prototypes and unique parts are made, yet they have not met expectation to enable low cost, small scale manufacturing.
The research question :
Can we use digital fabrication methods to create constructive, human scale, affordable products?
