Collaboration with Possible Books and Steffen Klaue
Mixed Media, 5 Arduinos
The Machine prints inked soapbubbles onto 80g Paper. Each page of 24 is printed individually with a randomized algorithm and dried with a hot air blower. Finally the pages are bound by an integrated sewing machine into its cover. Each book takes around 10 hours to be produced. The specific values for the actuators are margined by a restrictive frame necessary to make soapbubbles appear.
While the Algorithm for blowing the bubbles are preprogrammed, the ultimate order these appear in to create the book are randomized. And although programs may idetically retrace the same programmed route (lifting Bubble carrier, curve of windblower, time of blowing) the prints will show similarities, but each one will be unique.
