I set my deadline for the final sculpture a week earlier for an exposition of Noorderzon called AValanche in the Grand Theater in Groningen 24th of May.
Instead of building two sculptures where the audience could interact with (by choosing which mutation they like the most) I'm building one sculpture. The way audience can interact with the work is going to change as well.
I started by painting all materials and constructing a new frame for the servo's. This frame has to hold 10 servo's for controlling the movement of a pentagon shaped screen.
Right now I can control up to 10 servo's and recieve range data at the same time through just one Arduino.
I might add two more range finders but I need to do some experiments with it first before I install those as well.

For this trial exposition I'm gonna use the triangle shaped screen, basically I'm adjusting the prototype to fit the final sculpture column.
For the Night of Arts & Science the code and screen shape will be adjusted as well as the interaction.
The column with the backside open. There's some space at the bottom of the sculpture to hide the laptop and power cables.
The frame holds 10 servo's now, thought they're not all connected. It holds the Arduino and is the support for the cube which goes on top of it with the projection screen.
