I’ve just added a video of another project that I was a part of for the class Data and Algorithm in Art, which took place earlier this year at UChicago. This time I was working with Olivia Li and Pieter Ouwerkerk. We were trying to create a sense of experimentation, drawing from B. F. Skinner’s operant conditioning chamber—also known as the Skinner Box—from which arose the creepy myth that he raised his child in such a device. The display is connected to data coming from the robot as it moves in its claustrophobic environment. We found that this framework of analysis, the enclosure of the robot, and the restriction of its movements, all seem to evoke a kind of anthropomorphic empathy.
I just added a video of a project that some classmates and I did for a class called Data and Algorithm in Art at UChicago. It was a lot of fun to do, and although I’m a beginner with programming at best, I’d love to do something like that again. I’ve heard that there’s going to be a series of videos from that studio coming soon. I’ll be sure to link to them then.
