ENDLESS FLIPPER - Commissioned as part of a touring group show curated by Art by Friends, Endless Flipper is a robotic Balisong Knife Flipper. The piece uses both the large no.13 and small no.8 Opinel knives. Three stepper motors rotate in random swooping arcs, re-imaging the classic French knife as a Balisong knife (or Butterfly knife) - illegal in most countries. Following both fluid lines of the human version and the jerky glitches of the robotic imitator, Endless Flipper is a study of the re-interpretation of human gestures through robotic movement.
