Connect with the Empathy Swarm robots and have a peak live into the swarm’s habitat at the current »BioMedia« exhibition at ZKM Karlsruhe. See visitors interact with the swarm and interact with them through the swarm.
Follow this link to see the swarm as part of the online version of BioMedia. Here you can also discover other online artworks and be guided through the exhbition by an AI called bMEDIA. Or visit the artwork directly.
The swarm is online every Friday – Sunday, 1 p.m. – 6 p.m. CET / CEST
The online version Telehabitats enables visitors to connect virtually with one of the robots in the physical space from home and thus become part of the swarm. The movement of the cursor across the screen sets the path for the movement and it is possible to rotate the robot as well as to increase and decrease the distance to the rest of the swarm. The swarm reacts to the behavior of the connected robot as well as to visitors entering the habitat in the exhibition space at the ZKM.
