Artist Statement:

    May 27-July 23, Centre d’Art Cal Massó de Reus, Beep Collection: OriginsPublic event.

    This installation is based on their concerns and studies on the search for and representation of new forms of interaction/communication between mechanical components ,robots and carbon-based representations ,humans. Our goal is to foster communication by showing how it increases the degree of socialization while developing higher levels of communication

    The installation consists of ten robots, several cameras that record their movements in space and communicate the encounters that are generated to a social network system. These encounters are shown on a projector as a graphic display of crisscrossing lines. One of the robots is also equipped with a spy camera that represents one individual’s subjective point of view versus the graphic display of social statistics.

    “Independent Robotic Community” won the 1st edition of the ARCO-BEEP Electronic Art Award
