Tea-house for Robots (project)

We (rootoftwo) are working on a project for the following exhibition:

“Trouble in Paradise / The Ethics of Survival”
Date: Friday, July 9 – Sunday, August 22, 2010

International Symposium: “Creative Engagement / The Ethics of Survival”
Date: Part I: Saturday, July 10, Part II: Saturday, July 31
Location: The National Museum of Modern Art, Kyoto

It is a speculative space in a 'home of the future' where domestic appliances (robots) can go to recharge, update their firmware and generally get away from it all. The starting point for our robots are over-engineered, emotionally-durable, iconic products. You could say we are suckers for 'Raygun Gothic' - but we prefer the term 'SodaPop Chic'.

Karl Daubmann is working on the tea-house structure.

I am exploring a hybrid form of art and design practice through the use of computer-based design and fabrication tools. I am interested in experimental objects and spaces that are dynamic and responsive and seek to challenge perceptions, expectations and established behavior.
