On my Antarctic Fellowship with the Antarctic Division I was engaged with a lot of the research projects conducted aboard the Aurora Australis and on the stations. Portraying this research through an artistic lens is a great challenge.
I’m inspired by the concept Hideaki Ogawa terms “Artistic Journalism”. How do artists address serious issues such as climate change? Communication is one means. Artists can go further, offering understanding and solutions through artistic experiences.
Robots are becoming a greater part of our social and cultural lives and may one day be as pravalent in theses settings as in inustry and manufacturing.
In order to co-habit and co-create with robots we need to see beyond their utility and learn to collaborate and move together. We need to learn to be comfortable in each other’s presence. Human learning and machine learning are interwoven in this future.
