The anima_ta is an experimental installation generated by the use of digital techniques and processes proposing a different way of display. It is designed for the exhibition ‘digital topo_graphies’ to host computer mediated design research projects. Anima means air, breath, and life. Anima is “full of life”, able to change through interior and exterior parameters, to grow or age.
The materialized form is a result of merging new techniques of CAD/CAM, CNC digital-fabrication punching machines with traditional handcraft experience. The structure was realised in painted sheet metal. The sheet metal was bend to take its natural shape.
