Cover and video animation for Nature Physics journal

This cover was created to go with the paper "Selective and collective actuation in active solids" from Gulliver laboratory. In active solids, work is performed by elastically coupled units. By studying a minimal experimental model of an active solid, actuation mechanisms resulting in a collectively oscillating displacement field that drives work cycles are identified.
