Kinetic synth
This is a project I made in the first year of school. Ive always been a huge fan Theo Jansen and his "strandbeesten" (I even have a miniature one!). And I really wanted to challenge myself into making a kinetic sculpture.

I build a movement based on Leonardo Da Vinci's ornithopter, which worked on a small scale. But when I upscaled the project tons of problems and failures came to the surface. It was fun trying to fix all of those and in the end my sculpture worked! (kind of)
