This project recreates M.C. Escherʼs Drawing Hands by using two microfluidic channels as lines. As a dyed fluid fills the channels, the lines are literally "drawn." Each hand will be composed of a single channel. The channels end at the pencil point, so that as the channel fills and the hands are drawn, each hand turns out to be drawing the other. While ink on paper is static, this work is dynamic since the fluid continuously flows during the drawing process. As the channels are filled and refilled, the drawing is erased and redrawn. Also, the presence of bubbles in the flow heightens the dynamic nature of this microfluidic drawing.
