Flower Robotics

Technical assistance
Nov 3, 2007–Jan 27, 2008
Contemporary Art Gallery, Art Tower Mito, Mito

I took charge of making the prototype of the robot for Ryuya Matsui’s exhibition, ‘ Flower Robotics’, in the Contemporary Art Gallery at the Art Tower Mito. Each robot’s character is determined by analyzing the inputted voice. As a result of the analysis, those robots have sex (pitch), characters (change in volume), and conditions (change in rhythm). Those robots also affect each other creating patterns of light and sound.
