The marionettes are synchronized and selfgoverning, They have built-in breathing and movement. The technique is a meeting between a 300 years old Japanese puppet tradition and mechatronics.

The technique of the puppets is developed by engineer Myles Severud and a group of technologists at the KTH. The skeletons of the puppets are made by puppet-maker Thomas Lundquist.

ÖN, blandmaterial, mekanik 95/120/200 h/dj/b 2018

Marionetterna är synkroniserade med varandra och självstyrande. De har

inbyggd andning och rörelse. Tekniken är ett möte mellan 300 år gammal

japansk dockteatertradition och mekatronik.

Dockornas teknik är framtagen av ingenjör Myles Severud och en grupp teknologer på KTH. Dockornas

skelett har tillverkats av dockmakare Thomas Lundquist.
