Hap

The hap generator is a random based machine that produces individual items.
By interacting with the machine the production becomes perceptible. The hap fabricates objects with an emotional value.
According to the random principle, an interactive process was developed, which adopts industrial manufacturing work cycles and involves people as a production stimulus.
Thin strips of polyethylen foils are caught by an air draft and then moved to a three dimensional mold. Afterwards the plastic material sticks together by the use of hot air.
