"Meshes as Interactive Surfaces" By Philip Beesley

"The design of the components, assembles, and actuated devices of the Hylozoic Series is a collaborative, evolutionary process. Design hypotheses, sketch models, experiments and tests are produced in many cycles for each component. This process incrementally refines and improves the structure in specific ways - strengthening a local weakness, preventing a joint cracking, or increasing a range of motion. Initial production tends to focus on the component itself, clarifying and refining its individual qualities. Interface between an individual component and other devices is addressed in further cycles..."
