Abstract:

  • Our work is about displacement of existing artifacts and expected life-like behaviors. The robots can be seen as virtual organisms that move and produce sound and light as the outcome of their invented metabolisms. One of the aesthetic choices of this work being the evocation of life through abstract inorganic skeletons, the machines are deliberately simplistic. Our goal is not to simulate or physically reproduce real-life animals; but rather, to deal with the multiplicity of primitive mechanical animats.
