Parasite


image3

“Parasite” was designed as a “creature” that integrates living & non-living attributes.
The idea was to create a Biomimetic design: a nature-like mechanism that
contracts/expands in response to its surroundings.

The “parasite” moves in response to the presence of viewers (using an IR sensor).
The prototype was modeled in Maya, Rhino and Illustrator, then 3-D printed and laser-cut.

The mechanical movement of the linkages is powered by one servo motor that moves the creature in a surprising manner.
