i am rachael. i make soft robots. and teach yoga.

Last semester I started to investigate the potential for electronics to be combined with traditionally made fibre structures and then to be used in performance. The result was soft robot, a performing identity/ongoing exploration in performance art that culminated in a ‘super project’ which encapsulated work from four different courses. A video of my final performance can be found here and photos of other soft robots that I have made can be found here.

This semester I am interested in delving deeper into the world of mask, electronics and performance art. I started my initial mask (snowman) curious as to how I could use technology to further that which makes us human: our ability to show/feel emotion. I am eager to explore this idea in more depth over the course of this semester as I continue to work with mask, electronics, fibre, and performance.
