The BurghBot Project.
Flora is part of a project between the Pittsburgh Technology Council, the CMU Robotics Institute's CREATE Lab and James Gallery in Pittsburgh, PA. Each of the 10 selected artists created his/her own interactive adaptation with CREATE Lab's robotic framework.There are 10 different mechanisms that move different parts of Flora and there is a computer attached in the back that has the programmed movements.
The piece is 3ft x 6ft on 2 pedestals.
Materials: wood, polymer clay, silk, wire, mono filament, cardboard and electronic components.
Flora was awarded Best of Show and at the 2009 Annual Art+Technology Exhibition. It is on display at the 15 Minutes Gallery through July 17, 2009

I am really glad you uploaded this viodeo in addition to your stills !! Now I "get it".

Pittsburgh rocks ! :-) See everyone, Pittsburgh is not just the Steelers...... though they ARE great ! I heard they are currently making room for the 7th Super Bowl Trophy. Do I hear noises of envy ?
