RC4 in London researches computational design methodologies for large-scale 3D printing with industrial robots, taking logistical, structural and material constraints as design opportunities to generate non-representational architectural spaces with extreme information density.
Rising Colorspace is a new installation by the Sonice Development duo comprised of a third ‘systemic robot’ drawing it’s rising movements as bow-like lines onto a shiny metallic wall.
Minibuilders is a research project comprised of a family of small-scale construction robots designed to perform diverse tasks, linked to the different phases of construction, finally working together as a family towards the implementation of a single structural outcome.
Make Longer Cables is a short film including a custom made five-axis robotic arm that is trying to escape monotony by committing suicide.
Created by Andreas Gysin in collaboration with Sidi Vanetti, Fari is a kinetic installation created with an array of moving light heads in a geometric configuration and programmed as a choreography.
Some seven months ago Squarepusher and WARP records released a video titled Z-Machines, comprised of hand built robots showcasing the stupendous chops of the robot guitarist, drummer and keyboard player.
Robo Faber is an autonomous drawing robot determined to continuously reproduce graphic connectors. It creates drawings generated using a preset system that is based on the the same process as drawings created by hand.
Captives is an ongoing series of digital and physical sculptures by Quayola and a contemporary homage to Michelangelo’s unfinished series “Prigioni” (1513-1534) and his technique of “non-finito”.
Created by London based experimental architecture and design studio Minimaforms, this project is speculative life-like robotic environment that raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday.
On September 26th the Vienna Tourist Board will be hosting an event where Alex Kiessling is creating artworks not only in Vienna, but simultaneously in Berlin and London with the help of 2 industrial robots.
“Void” is a large scale mechanical structure that uses 8 synchronized winches system, suspended from 8 corner of the cubical space to produce light paintings over the public parking lot in Nagoya, Aichi Prefecture, Japan.
The process allows the creation of freeform objects without the need for molds or supporting structures. Likewise, tool can be changed, manual and multi-material injections performed, live modification and the ability to physically “undo” the print.
