Kinetic sculpture that reacts to light
Video of Bionic Oak Tree

A simple program created in Max MSP takes input from three photo sensors on the sculpture and outputs a set voltage determined by the amount of light shined on the photo sensors. The voltage put out controls a small servo motor which pulls cables within the hollowed out Oak branch creating movement in the sculpture.
