Me You and The Robot — Debates Visualizer — Eindhoven, Netherlands
In a complex world where the amount of Information and veracity are always at check, this project proposes a new form to look at the objects that surrounds us; as being visual summaries of real world debates and conversations under an algorithm perspective. It raises a new materialism where meaning and data are present to freeze a moment in time and translating it into human understanding. The algorithm uses a system of voice recognition to extract the words used in the debates to later on analyse and dissipate. From that moment it will look in online databases for shapes that can resume the discussion. At the end an archetype of a vase made by a composition of 3 objects together. With this they aim to mix the use of technology and everyday objects to analyse the contemporary societies by the eyes of a machine, making his perspective come back to us.
Me You and The Robot is a multidisciplinary collective lead by Henrique Nascimento and Erik Vlemmix that focusses on the implications of robotization on the future of work. On the crossroads of ethics, technology and design, the collective propose scenarios on how humans and algorithms can work together through new forms of interaction. Through installations, digital systems and storytelling, they design interactive choreographies between man and machine.
