Site Specific Response was a graduate seminar in which students developed methods for creating material animations. Teams examined the relationship of various electronic actuation typologies – servos, motors, solenoids, etc, in relation to physical material properties through a series of small-scale experiments. For the final prototype one of the material tests were scaled up to 1:1. The goal for the final prototype was to create a system where the electronic actuation would act as a physical amplifier of the material properties through its animation.
