Ars Electronica Center, Linz
– 12 March 2017
The “Creative Robotics” exhibition provides an overview of industrial robotic technologies as well as highlighting their creative possibilities in completely new fields of application. The exhibits include Fluxuri, a thin surface material which can be painted or altered by touching it with your fingers or hands and the robotic assistant Kinetic Weaving, which supports the production of foldable construction elements made from a variety of materials. Also included in the exhibition is furniture created by the interdisciplinary team Robotic Woodcraft, specialising in individualised production processes using robotic technologies. Other projects showcased are Tailored Structures – a project developing new production methods for wooden constructions, the work Robot, Doing Nothing which focuses on speculative design and the project Self-Balancing Cube.
The exhibition has been developed in cooperation with Kuka, one of the leading manufacturers of industrial robots, the robotics laboratory of the Kunstuniversität Linz, the Institute of Robotics of the Johannes Kepler Universität Linz, the research project Robotic Woodcraft from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna, the Faculty of Architecture at Aachen University, and the developer of Fluxuri, Marc Printz.
