This is a seven-week project developed as a part of the MSc Adaptive Architecture and Computation course('11-'12) at the Bartlett, University College London. The surface is a combination of 3d printed components and elastic material. Elasticity enables the formation of a surface which can be inflated. The performance of the surface is triggered by the inputs received from the user, using a pulse sensor, and the environment, using a mobile's phone GPS system. A small scale customized pneumatic system enables the flow of air, which is controlled by processing and arduino. The rhythm in which air is distributed through the components varies according to the signal received by the sensors, and eventually causes transformations. The project introduces the notion of bio-feedback into the urban context.
