Side Projects

A smorgasbord of hobby projects and coursework.


mechanical origami flower

For this project, I wanted to explore how to design simple robots using accessible materials such as paper and copper tape. I used Smart Memory Alloy (SMA) wire to make a origami flower that changes colors and unfurls when you bend a sheet of paper.

Inspired by this tutorial from the MIT High-Low Tech Group.


'drawyou', generative art

Interactive art project created for an art show. Combines user input and generative art in an attempt to create an artistic representation of that person's emotional state.


resin inlay table

Woodworking project to design and build a resin-inlay coffee table. Modeled in SketchUp before construction.
