Raging Mop was an installation work I did with my schoolmates (Shuhang Yu, Xiangyu Xu, and Yi Han) in 2010 as the final project of a micro-controller workshop given by the visiting scholars from École Nationale Supérieure des Arts Décoratifs.
This angry broken mop tended to escape from light and embrace darkness. There were four mini photocells on the broken handle. They worked together with a couple of optocouplers and an Arduino board hidden inside to decide the direction it goes.
The name was a parody of Raging Mob, an underground thrash/crossover metal band in Beijing.
