Make: Day recap – interactive animatronic sculptures

Asia Ward is a talented Maker who also works at the Science Museum of Minnesota. She makes interactive sculptures that jiggle, shuffle, squeak, and recoil using electronic toys, household gadgets, worn out cloth, leather, glass, plastic and rubber. In the past, she’s mounted a show called “The Re-Fleshing of Childhood,” which featured her toy-like figures and sculptures that she says are “initially unsettling,” but despite their “awkward, unnatural appearances, they are still in need of love and attention.”

She showed off her gorgeous and unique creatures at Make: Day.
