Week 1: build the original drawing machine
Week 2 : make sketch model to change to the original drawing machine
I separate the two step moters, and make the paper spin.
Week 3 : continue to make physical change to the machine.
Using copper pipe to replace the wood board.
Week 4: Explore how to use sound to control the machine.
Use Pure data to read the pitch and volume of my voice.
Separate my voice into different ranges.
Use OSC to connect Pure Data with Processing.
Week 5 : Use Pure data to send data to Processing.
Use Processing to control Arduino.
Use my voice to control the machine.
Find position for differernt pitches.
Week 6 : visual pattern exploration -- watercolor drop
Some explorations of how to play back the sound.
I tested 12v 6N solenoid, and connected with Arduino.
I bought two kinds of Pipettes. The glass one is 3ml, and the plastic one is 1ml.
I tried to use sloenoid to squeeze the pipettes, but it was too weak to push the water out.
But the servo works. It is much stronger than the solenoid.
