This project is a robotic origami prototype that uses solar energy data to control its behaviour. Bringing together natural and technological themes in a kinetic composition, it visualises their common denominator – energy. Soligami’s colours follow the passage of time, shifting as the seasons change. Soligami works in real time, streaming online data, but in this exhibition it is displaying solar data for 2012, sourced from UCL’s City Dashboard.
