One of Taxatron's Motor Boards
Taxatron uses 15 stepper motors to render graphs of scientific data with a giant piece of silk fabric. The circuit board above provides the components necessary to drive the motor and calibrate the sculpture.
Taxatron is a kinetic sculpture that I made in 2010 for the Marine Biological Laboratory. To learn more about it, visit my website ryanschenk.com/2010/11/taxatron/
