What happens when we feed machines not just our physical actions or our
conversational intelligence to mimic or reference, but the ability to
directly connect to something considered human?
Unhuman is a real-time performative installation. The idea of this installation comes from the consideration that the
machines in the near future will develop the ability to communicate
independently, disconnecting from their mere production and industrial
function, to express its own art form. In this project, the machine
chooses music as the sphere of its artistic expression. As a conductor
uses his baton to direct the musicians, so the robot uses a laser to
interact and activate the 32 spheres that surround him (the orchestra),
creating a symphony based on a circular harmonic algorithm.
The installation is composed of an industrial robot controlled in
real-time that moves within a circular space of 4 meters in diameter
consisting of 32 spheres suspended, inside which is positioned a sensor
which detects the amount of light generated by the laser to translate it
into a sound output.
