3 Story Robots

MEXICO CITY, CENTRO NACIONAL DE LAS ARTES ERROR MAQUINICO

2015

The “3-Story Robots” is a large robotic head on a rolling platform commissioned by the Centro National de Las Artes in Mexico city. They can track human form and stop and tell interactants a 3D – animated story about the coevolution of humans and robots. These robots use projection mapped imagery on a front facing screen to tell 3D animated stories about our emerging relationships with a semi - living robotic species. The “3-story Robots” speak stories of symbiogenisis, where in the future robotic augmentation will allow us to communicate more clearly with insects, animals and plants as well as form loving relationships with robots. Other themes explored are robots replacing humans in the labor pool, augmenting our pharmaceutical influences, robots overseeing human productivity and robots being powered off of human waste streams. In this future the robots have developed the capability to sense our pheromonal chemical signals and read our secret desires, to use these to to manipulate us, as they slowly assume greater and greater roles in human and robotic coevolution.
