The Cute Robot Project


This is a pretty innovative idea--Let a cute, friendly looking robot meander across the city and see if people help it reach its destination. The student "wondered: could a human-like object traverse sidewalks and streets along with us, and in so doing, create a narrative about our relationship to space and our willingness to interact with what we find in it? More importantly, how could our actions be seen within a larger context of human connection that emerges from the complexity of the city itself? To answer these questions, I built robots." Basically, we all have some good inside of us. Amidst all the crap in our lives, we still have some time left for it.
