I made a draft prototype to show the three layers in my model.  large pieces on top ‘crack’ open as show in photos to reveal pieces below. there are more ‘vertical’ pieces that are lifted from one layer to another, to interact with the different layers. I am currently experimenting with a scissor mechanism that ‘expands’ and contracts to lift this pieces up and down on the different layers, as well as to bring pieces closer and further from each other. the actual model will be using acrylic and metal rods as a stand instead of wood and polypropylene for now as it is stronger. below is the plan of the pieces on each layer. as mentioned in the previous tutorial, acrylic will be overlaid on top of individual pieces to show specific spaces within pieces, and acrylic layers overlaid as the next layer will show ‘timeline’ of situations and events.Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 4.28.06 pm Screen Shot 2014-11-21 at 4.28.30 pm

Thanks for the post.

Yes the model is very helpful to visualise the idea desired. 1-Perhaps would be good to know more about the logic behind the configurations and how they may influence the cascade or transformation.
2- Additionally is missing on this post an update on the arduino side of the project, from ideas to development. Have you make further progress on that front?
3- The scissor mechanism definitely needs a few diagrams exploring the possibilities since it can be a strong feature of the piece, but most important it needs studies to show different configurations and relations with the transformation.

Look forward to see the progress on Tuesday.
