The final build is completed to a reasonable standard. The final scale is an interesting one to work with. At first when i thought about making a model of piece of work, it seemed a little strange, but when i thought about how sculptors work from model’s first, it became an a useful thought to keep hold of. I’m particularly pleased with the movement of the walls, expecting this to be one of the more challenging areas. But in fact this seemed to just slot into place. I did try and measure the hight of the walls to be just the same hight has the outside box minus the bar, this proved very useful in the end. The issue of the motors and how to react to them not been able to give me the precision I first went looking for has left me with mixed feelings. I’m excited by the idea that the project is a self referential system, one which responds and reacts to itself as much as the people in the room, but i’m also left with a slight wonder weather I should have used servo motors instead. Although i’m not sure I would have been able to get enough torque out of them to move something as big as the walls (costs considered). I still would have liked to see how a moving object can directly change a space. But i almost feel theres more space for me to try new things out when I’m not trying to be too perfect or precise about how a material reacts. I think its interesting the way the need to dominate the physical world can sometimes leave me with a kind of emptiness that I don’t get when things missbehave and create there own situations out of very small beginnings. I found using the motor shield a good way for me to be more hands on rather than getting to bog down with coding, it gave me the chance to play with the motors in a very fast and easy way. Although I messed up my first shield, the chance to solder a whole new one, was perfect for me to practice my soldering skills and now I feel much more confident been able to solder lots of different components and wires together. A final point I should make is not always been aware how long everything takes. I found myself spending twice or sometimes three times the amount of time on something than planned and finding myself rushing too much towards the end of the project.
