Conference full papers:

This research proposes an animation technique using external stimuli to activate kinematic transformations in material. Inherent material properties were enhanced to obtain specific behaviors. Carefully designed but easily fabricated two-dimensional paper constructions animate into three-dimensional configurations through water absorption in three different conditions: Surface, Datum, and Depth. Principles of origami, fiber orientation, and wax patterns are used to control movement in response to choreographic considerations. Digital workflows and analysis coupled with physical prototyping were used to produce patterns and informed a formal and performative taxonomy. Choreographed Matter contributes to expanding the expressive potential of material-based responsive systems and animation.
