Interweaving is a project that blur the boundary of human craft and robot fabrication. One of the sculpture we build is from preprogram robot fabrication while the other one is from the collaboration of human and robot.
Base on the material research of UV curing resin, we design an end tool for KUKA robot arm to process the fabrication. With the telepresent interface built in Unity and HTC Vive, we can augment the preprogram fabrication with human influence. The keystone of this project is when we compare these two sculptures from two process (Robot Fabrication and Robot+Human Fabrication), we can easily observe the domain of human operation within the result.
In this project we are freed ourselves from the final form of sculpture and focus on setting up the work flow and platform for Robot+Human Collaboration and the effect from different parameters.
