Project Description

Who Am I? A human-robot performance

H3, ODEON TEATHER, ARS ELECTRONICA FESTIVAL 2020

Who Am I is a performance investigating identity as narrative in a Phoenix-like perspective, from its affirmation to its annihilation and then intrinsically resurging as something entirely new.
Broadening the spectrum of identity through the use of robotics as performers interacting with humans leads to wider interrogations on bio-mechanics and the nature of movement within the quest for alternative kinds of kinship, like the one between humans and machines, however shaded by fear of other patterns of thought then ours it may be. Historically, coping with the fear of the unknown has constantly triggered evolution.

Who Am I is the first human-robot performance taking place in Romania, selected by Ars Electronica Festival 2020 as part of H3 Garden/ Before detach().
