Metabotics showcases the results of a collaboration between Jaime del Val and Marije Baalman focussing on robotic architectural structures.
DATE: 17th of April, 2016
TIME: 20:00 (Doors open at 19:30)
LOCATION: STEIM, Achtergracht 19, 1017WL Amsterdam
On this evening the outcome will be presented of a week-long research residency with Jaime del Val (Reverso) and STEIM’s Marije Baalman (website) and local collaborators (to be announced) on extending the flexible architectures of Metatopia with embedded motors – giving them autonomous movement and elaborating the notion of Metabotics as amorphous, non-anthropomorphic, non-functional indeterminate robotics.
During the evening there will be a presentation by Jaime del Val about the work on Metatopia in the context of the METABODY project. Also the audience can enter the Metatopia and experience moving within the structure in connection with other bodies and the evolving surroundings.
After the experience there will be discussion with the artists.
