A brief history of Oribotics

The first oribot by the artist Matthew Gardiner was made during an artists residency in 2003, at the Latrobe Regional Art Gallery. The project was prototyped using a Lego Mindstorms kit, some rubber bands and a sheet of cardboard. Since then the technology use to create the works has evolved significantly. The artist is currently using 3D printing, moulding, laser cutting, and hand-craft fabrication techniques to produce oribotic kinetic sculptures.



The core idea of the work carries on in each generation, that of pure oribotics, as self folding material.
