The following is a sampling of works created in collaboration with Professor Jennifer Parker and DANM graduate students in the Mechatronics research cohort DANM250A series, with additional undergraduate student team members from several disciplines across campus.

Mechatronics is the functional integration of mechanical, electronic, and information technologies.  In Digital Arts and New Media Graduate (DANM) program at UCSC this framework is employed for the development and production of physical, systems-based artwork that incorporates elements of robotics, motion control, software engineering, and hardware design. DANM Mechatronics research involves the use of a variety of media including video, performance, sound, and sculpture to create complex kinetic audio-visual systems for the exploration of temporality, materiality, experience, perception at the root of collaborative research.
