The Reality Gap – A commentary and speculative documentation on robotic, artificial life forms

Created by Riccardo Lardi, The Reality Gap is a research project that investigates how robot movements evoke empathy towards humans and speculates where will the next generation of robotic systems come from and where will they go. Inspired by the 90’s research in artificial behaviour, especially the work of Karl Sims – “Evolved Virtual Creature”, Riccardo has developed a series of robotic agents, each "living" in it's very own, specific habitat, try to evoke an empathic, human reflex on the viewer while raising questions on how to assess "aliveness".
