What we made for others

oh-man, oh-machine

The OH-MAN, OH-MACHINE lab is a multi-disciplinary research initiative brining together artists, scientists and technology developers to investigate human-machine interaction, using both scientific and artistic research methods. The outcome of the group’s activity range from academic articles, critical texts to artistic and performative events. Current research project explores ‘re-embodied movement’ by using brain-computer interfaces based on EEG. Preliminary results will be published towards the summer of 2016.

SamaSama Park

STONY 1.0

In Itamar Shimshoni’s innovative exhibit, Stony 1.0 is a robot that operates inside a gallery hall. The robot moves around a real life size double headstone. During the day it “wonders” around, cleaning, placing a red rose then a dark stone on the headstone and playing music.

One could say that “Stony 1.0” places a (passive) mirror of the relationship between technology and death, without creating a dichotomy between them; while at the same time, it (actively) bases this relationship so that we can participate in real time mourning ceremonies.
