The Blind Robot

Louis-Philippe Demers’s robotics works are awesomeness! The work that really caught my attention is the human-robot interaction,  ‘The Blind Robot’.  What conclusions did you reach(intellectual, emotional or physical)?

Nowadays, HRI is pretty restricted where companies, e.g manufactures, employing robots not letting humans and robots share the same workspace at any time. Typically sensors and/or physical cages is used by defining safe zones. How did you dealt with safety issues in this specific artistic installation?

Robots seems to be our new “friend” for our modern society with companies such as Boston Dynamics (owned by Google) keep pushing the boundaries.  Do you think there someday will be a safe and friendly human-robot relationship?





The Ice Hotel

Every winter for the past 26 years, artists arrive from all over the world at the end of November to construct the Ice Hotel in Jukkasjärvi, 200km north of the Arctic Circle. Ice is transformed to art sculptures and architecture that is set to attract thousands of visitors before it melts away in the spring.
