Coppelia One is an
interactive humanoid robot that responds to
audience movement by pirouetting and
transitioning through the basic ballet
positions of the arms. Coppelia One is
the first doll from The
Coppelia Project. The Coppelia
Project is inspired by the story about a
clockwork girl from the ballet "Coppelia" by
Delibes, based on an earlier work by Hoffmann.
The robot is a portrait of Jayne Smeulders of
the West Australian Ballet. Coppelia One
was exhibited at the Curious Characters
exhibition of automata artworks at the Morris
Museum, NJ, USA in 2018.
