The Lux festival brought crowds to Wellington’s waterfront each evening last week, and among the works was θr, an audiovisual kinetic sculpture by Mo Zareei and Jim Murphy. Mo is a PhD student in mechatronics and sound at Victoria University, and Jim is a recent graduate of the same course.
Jim has been on Our Changing World previously in a story about Chime Red, a Victoria University collaboration between music and engineering students using three Tesla coils, the MechBass robotic bass guitar and robotic drums.
Mo has featured in a previous story about robotics and music of the future.
