“String Fountain” is a kinect sculpture by Paolo Salvagione.
The challenge, how does one present 50’s synchronized swimming, or water works like the Bellagio fountain in Las Vegas, without water. Pushing string with a motor is not a new idea. Adding servo motors and a microcontroller to create automated and interactive installation is what I was looking to do during my residency at Autodesk’s new facility on Pier 9.
The Pier 9 Artists in Residence program gives artists, makers, and fabricators a chance to work with us in our digital fabrication workshops at Autodesk. Our artists explore, create, and document cutting-edge projects, and share them with the DIY community.
That’s why you can find an Instructable to build one element of the String Fountain here.
You can see the sculpture in this video.
Here you can see one element of the sculpture in detail.
