Midterm: Building Cubicles by Youmna and Daniela
Building Cubicles is interactive sculptural piece that takes the shape of a building.
The building has different compartments where different characters live.
The public is invited to open each door to discover the characters personality.
When a user opens the door, the paper automatas start to move in different ways. This movements is triggers by a sensor, in this case an ultra sonic range finder.
The narrative behind the piece is fantastic and funny.
The characters act like spies. They are intended to be funny and to some extent absurd and creepy.
The building and the automatas are made out of cardboard, chipboard and different papers.
We mixed these materials with hand drawn illustrations because we wanted to convey a comic, sketchy look and feel.
