During my exploration of water-responsive materials and shape-changing interfaces, I got intrigued by the helical morphing mechanism and the underlying interaction.

This project opened up many new experience to me - a whole set of fabrication techniques was involved in the making of all the artifacts we developed.

Watch the video below to see how they morph.
