MORA, a miniature, biomimetic robot, and I spent a lot of time together. We traveled from a lab in Harvard to a new robotics lab at Olin to the OCEANS conference in Charleston. For all of the public appearances we had lined up, MORA needed an image, a brand.
In the wonderful class called Tell the Story of What You Make, I embarked on creating a story for my fish, creating a box, evolution poster, and assembly manual. These artifacts became both a documentation form and a style for my future work in writing a paper and creating a poster for a technical conference.
