UNHUMAN

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.
