Empathy Swarm workshop

3. May - 4. May 2022

Workshop for young people and adults in Xcenter, Nova Gorica

The workshops, which will take place on 3 and 4 May from 5 pm to 8 pm, will present the creative possibilities of a robotic swarm.

Participants will learn about and develop:

  • color theory for a dynamical system
  • digital storytelling through behavior and color
  • human-robot interaction

Experience the installation Empathy Swarm and collaborate with the swarm and artistic duo Katrin Hochschuh and Adam Donovan on a new version of the work.

Is it possible that the swarm tells the hero’s journey?
How do people experience this different form of life?

More about the project:

On Thursday, May 5, there will be a presentation at the opening of the exhibition Empathy Swarm Orchestra – Cyber ​​Intimacy

Empathy Swarm is an artificial life form that explores social interaction between non-human beings using behavior and movement as a language for interspecific communication that can also be understood by the human observer.

The interactive robotic artwork, which includes 10 robots, is a research platform for the embodiment of artificial intelligence and explores Marie-Luise Angerer’s notion of affect and its warning to keep coincidence alive as a special open form of possibility that could easily be lost through technology. life and the environment in a rigid AI system.
