discussion to the work of a friend of mine, Mari Veronaki, (who is an
ethnically Greek Australian), at the Centre for Social Robotics in
Her 'Fish-Bird' installation, the public aspect of a significantly
funded interdisciplinary research project for the past 6 years, avoids
the physically humanistic fixation of robotic experiments and
concentrates instead on (poetic) dialogues, in this case between two
wheelchairs. Thus mobility and interaction in a 100 sq metre space -
between the wheelchairs and in response to the presence of visitors -
demonstrate ideas of agency and intimacy in a machine and gallery/
The Centre is based in an industrial research department of scientists
and technologists and has demonstrated the genuine trust and
engagement that can emerge from interdisciplinary teams.
