Artificial Ignorance

Provenance and Period:

DAE. Eindhoven, 2017

In the far future, when even robots are driven out of the job market by even more efficient robots, what would happen to them? Will they be decommissioned, torn back into pieces? Re-assembled into more advanced robots to get a new life? Or, perhaps, keep staring at a computer screen, scrolling down the endless feed of internet, like we humans do whenever there is spare time?

Kinetic sculpture presents a twisted look forward into the future: a robot, endlessly scrolling through web pages full of memes and jokes, with the relentlessness of a machine.
