Trundle is a behavioral sculpture -- an abstraction of a biological system. It interacts with its environment through an array of sensors and motors. The origins of Trundle lie in the work of Mid-century kinetic sculptors Lazlo Moholy-Nagy, Vassilakis Takis, and Nicolas Schoffer, scientists such as H. Ross Ashby and W. Grey Walter and current research in behavioral robotics. Trundle is a focused study of movement and interaction in physical space.

As people move through the environment, Trundle responds by changing its direction and orientation. The way Trundle responds is the result of its programmed behavior.

Detailed information about Trundle can be found in the thesis Behavioral Kinetic Sculpture.
