Philip Beesley and Will Elsworthy’s Implant Matrix [http://www.philipbeesleyarchitect. com/sculptures/0610implant_matrix/implant.html] is an interactive sculptural installation currently on exhibition in Toronto. The piece uses purpose programmed micro-controlled sensors and actuators that provide a mechanical response to user stimuli. Arrays of shape memory alloy (SMA or “muscle wire”) driven pores open and close as people touch sensors that are suspended from the matrix. Despite being digitally manufactured of acrylic and mylar, the piece becomes an organic, living entity.
