The Blind Robot

Interactive art

Louis-Philippe DEMERS [Canada]


The Blind Robot is about the understanding of the degrees of human engagement when a social robot intimately touches a person. This work originated from a recently known cultural artifact, the robotic arm, which has been transformed from a cold high-precision tool into a fragile, imprecisx, sensual and emotionally loaded agent.
