Threading Space

Threading Space: Kinetic Sculpture exploring Spatial Interaction using Threads in Motion

Ramarko Bhattacharya, You Li, Emilie Faracci, Harrison Dong, Ken Nakagaki


Threading Space is a kinetic sculpture that explores how spatial perception can be transformed by dynamically and geometrically reconfiguring physical lines of thread using a swarm of mobile robots on the floor and ceiling. As the threads interact and intertwine with each other, they become a hypnotic medium for tangible patterns in three-dimensional space. Through a physical installation and an interactive GUI, Threading Space invites the audience to explore the potential of using swarm robots and line elements to create, morph, and interact with space.
