suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Brian HARMS with Haejun JUNG, Vince HUANG, & Yuying CHEN: This project aims to blur the line between processes of design and fabrication in the context of rapid prototyping by increasing the fluidity of the fabrication process through coordinated material and robotic processes. The project exploits feedback loops that allow the process to be used as a live generative form-finding tool as well as a method for reification of designed objects.
