We started think three keywords that in a big range of interesting, which is addicted, annoying and awkward. By explored these keywords, we discussed a series animal actions, for example : A flying moth dart into fire, snake eat itself which related to those keyword.

After discussed, we find out that self-destructive is a interesting idea to work on. The question of how to enhance the feeling of self destructive leading us to a mock up level.

By build a small version of robot arm, we trying to get a action of self-destructive in a directly way, which is bite itself. Then we extend this action to be more like animal. Which that including three different action under different situation.

It is far away, near by, and left away. We want to give a feeling of sorry to our audience when they see it, they need to pay more attention to things that they care at.
