Research Study: A

I would like to construct a dynamic 3D/4D printed sculpture that responds to heat and touch. I want to construct it with multiple pieces and steps so different sections of the sculpture respond to different actions. I want to minimize sensors and actuators, and work on engineering the material to do all the moving on its own.
