the schmelzolan series

the schmelzolan workshop combines the creation of plastic forms with the overheadbots or with ralf schreiber’s solar sound modules. schmelzolan is  plastic granulat that melds into transparent plastic , it was very popular in the 70 for creating window decoration, belt-buckles, brooches and more. it is a reference to the early diy-tinker culture.  combined with a suneater you create kinetic schmelzolan objects that move when light hits the solar panel.
