Robot Selfie

Kaleider

Exeter

2020

A Robotic vertical drawing machine mounted on the outsides of buildings captures images of the public and then draws their faces, creating a big mural of all the many faces together. As you look at it you might have your image captured and drawn. 

About Robot Selfie

Robot Selfie is a new show from Kaleider.

The politics of the project and the robotic vertical drawing machine can be dialled up or down, for example, the AI could capture everyone’s image that looks at the installation, or it could identify only women, or only children or only people of colour and only draw a particular demographic asking its audience to engage in tougher questions.
