Project Description

This sculpture project was created using plaster. To make this sculpture come to life the Makey Makey device and the Scratch platform was used to code. Camera sounds were recorded using sound effects found on YouTube and by using the https://ttsreader.com/ website to create text to speech recordings. The recordings provided ways for the sculpture to become interactive and come to life when viewers used the Makey Makey device. Metal push pins were used as conductors with the Makey Makey device.
