How can I perform a 3D printer?
The Harp is a physical interface to control the sounds and motions of a 3D printer. Printers sing their own songs when printing objects, and with the Harp I can perform the machine to sing differently.
Six “strings” are stroked to trigger gestures from the printer, and the strength of the stroke affects the expression of the gesture by controlling its pitch. The gestures come from the code to print the strings, so the machine is in effect performing parts of its own construction.
