This piece is an attempt toward differentiating human from machine, and how in these times of accelerating technology why is this becoming evermore so important. I wish to break the steps in the process of which a human interacts with a command. Through the use of microcontrollers, wood fabrication and photoresistors I have compiled an automata that gives humans and a simple machine to interact on a level playing field.

Materials: laser cut plywood, 3D printed parts, servos, arduino, photoresistor light sensor
