PROCESS
Enchanted with the oddness of daily activities, and also indecisiveness that comes with reinventing a routine, we wanted to build something that challenged traditional norms for what is understood as ritual and design.
PROCESS
After building the bot with tracery JSON by Kate Compton and the Twitter API, we set up a physical version of the bot with Adafruit IO software and Raspberry Pi.
FINAL OUTCOME

There have been ~5k physical and 2k digital rituals printed till date.
