Presentation


Overview

Robots have been capturing people’s imaginations for more than 100 years. Yet Robots show their affinity to people almost solely in films. In real life they are built by military or academic institutions. Is this the fate of Robots? Or can designers and makers turn their destiny towards a much more awesome path?

Jan’s mission is to do creative experiments, down-to-earth science fiction narratives, by crafting imperfect Robots and cybernetic installations that don’t simply help people to feel stronger – but rather to feel more vulnerable and exposed. Instead of threatening human existence on this planet, Robots will teach humans more about themselves; they will be able to carry the essence of humanity far into the future.
