"This text is written to outline what artists may choose to do on the subject in order to i) simplify our life in the long run, ii) generate income, and iiii) take ownership of the way our work will be presented in the future."
A large-scale robotic installation consisting of two custom robot arms designed and manufactured by myself based on a design for a surgical robot which constrains the movement of the end effector to orbit around a single point in space. The two robots perform a dance duet together by performing movement sequences.
The movement is controlled by two stepper motors in the base which transmit rotation to the end effector through a system of belts, pulleys, chains and sprockets. The end effector is fitted with a warm white LED bulb to draw the attention of the viewer to the relationship between the two end effectors which share a spherical workspace. The spherical workspace echoes the Kinesphere, choreographer and dance theorist Rudolf Laban's conception of the range of motion of a dancer's body - a sphere formed by the reachable area from a standing position with limbs outstretched.
