My idea was to create a mechanical display made out of kinetic origami pixels. These pixels will open and close, thus representing a value between 0 and 1. In this display would be possible to display from greyscale images to generative art. Depending on the size of the pixels, the array could be 8x8 or even 16x16. Similarly, the idea is to make every pixel a module, therefore it could be possible to have different display sizes and shapes, but this is a secondary goal.

At the beginning I wanted to have a screw that opened and closed the origami motif, but I quickly began experimenting wiht other materials, and possibilities.

Eventually I realized I could 3D print the whole module.

The final motif is a 3D printed compliant mechanism that uses threads to open and close. Perhaps in the future Ill continue making mirrors.
