The How + Why is an electronic taxidermy installation that is part of the Parsons Design & Technology senior thesis exhibit. I was inspired by vintage How + Why Wonder books to create a fictional natural history museum display with animated creatures. The butterflies flap their wings, the deep sea fish becomes illuminated, and the turtle reveals its second head from within its shell. They are all controlled by hidden arduino boards, it can be seen in person until the 24th at the Chelsea Art Museum (Tues-Sat, 11-6)
