Guillaume Slizewicz and KIKK

Robigami is a series of workshops for children aged 10 to 14 that introduces simple origami techniques and programming basics using the Arduino platform. Robigami offers a new electronic take on the art of folding paper, inspired by the shifting, interactive structures of Edge of Chaos, a work by the Interactive Architecture Lab and Soft Robotic Matter Group.

Create your own origami robots and see how they react to light, touch, and other creatures. Dream up a world completely different from our own, where dragons are scaredy-cats, plants have taken over for the sun, and cellulose and electricity have replaced water and chlorophyll.

The workshop has been designed by Guillaume Slizewicz with support from the Kikk festival team. A tutorial allows to reproduce the workshop. It lasts 4 hours but could be replicated partly.
