Performance

Title: Code_red: Repeat After Me
Performers: Lian Loke (Sydney, Australia) and Kuka Iiwa robot

I often wished for a third arm, to make my life easier. Getting up in the morning, grooming and getting ready for the day… surely more efficient with the help of a robotic arm. But I forgot about the training! Using improvised performance as a research methodology, I enquire into future worlds, where humans and robots live with, learn from, and adapt to each other. Raising questions as to who is becoming-human, or indeed, who or what is becoming-robot.
