Alloplastic Architecture is a project by USC Post Professional MArch student, Behnaz Farahi, involving an adaptive tensegrity structure that responds to human movement. In this video a performance artist, Nicole Ives, dances with the structure that reacts to her presence without any actual physical contact. A Kinect motion sensor device tracks the movement of the dancer, and thereby reconfigures the entire structure through the use of an Arduino control board and Shape Memory Alloy [SMA] springs. The project was supervised by Alvin Huang, Neil Leach and Michael Fox.
