Notes

  • The location of this project affects some of the logistics. For example, if it were in a gallery, I would want the laptop and the machine to sit alone on a podium or table, and I would want the laptop to have a screen that doesn’t allow anyone to see except for the person directly in front of it. I also think it would be interesting to have a cloth screen of some sort or something like a voting booth around it to ensure privacy.
  • I’m not sure what I want the casing for the printer and Arduino to be made of; however, I will almost certainly paint it and/or add mixed media to make it enticing and fun.
