Radical Soft Robots
Eun Young Park
In-progress

Eun Young Park is examining the artistic possibilities of “soft robotics,” -robots made with soft material including silicone, vinyl, fabric, and paper. Inspired by the use of inflatables by utopian artists of 1960’s, the project aims to produce prototypes that visitors can engage with. Park’s project is called Radical Soft Robots.
