Sensory feedback-loops and real-time coding in additive manufacturing
The project examines the possibility to integrate organic strategies like regulatory circuits and feedbacks into the system of a 3D-printer. A sensory evoked feedback changes the online-coding of the printers movement and influences the form of the artefact. This becomes possible by using microprocessors as an open interface for sensory data and the adapted code. The inquiring approach is grounded on a fundamental interest in the emergence of form in nature and technique; it investigates the relation between the system components – material, printers construction and the coding – whose processes interlock each other.
