Event description

Description

Imagination is our window into the future. Led by each generation of artists and scientists, it is through their explorations and inventions that we push towards the edges of possibility.

Aeronautical and space developments are no exception and like other areas of human endeavour we are witnessing the increased use of robots as the technological tools for humans to make our visions of the future a reality. Remembering that you can architect the future, what lunatic ideas can we conceive, believe and achieve?

The Agency of Human-Robotic Lunatics is a live event featuring Artist-Astronaut, Dr Sarah Jane Pell. Through the use of a recently developed autonomous subject tracking robotic camera system, the Cinema Swarm, we see Pell’s live performance blend with VR mapping of historical lunar imaging data, and augmented reality artefacts from a real spacewalk simulation on earth called Project Moonwalk. Project Moonwalk develops and tests technologies and training procedures for future missions to the Moon and Mars*.

This performance builds a future survival tool kit by creating experimental scenarios where the art of the future can be enacted. It demonstrates how creativity may be leveraged in the extreme natural and technologically mediated environments of space and space simulations on earth and examines the exchange between human and autonomous systems.

*Project MOONWALK consortium comprises seven partners from six EU member states and one associated country: DFKI Robotics Innovation Center in Germany (Project Coordination), COMEX in France (Technical Coordination), EADS in Great Britain, LIQUIFER Systems Group (LSG) in Austria, Space Application Services (SAS) in Belgium, NTNU Centre for Interdisciplinary Research in Space in Norway, and Instituto Nacional de Técnica Aeroespacial (INTA) in Spain.
