Through his installation of suspended robots, the artist Ugo Dehaes creates a corporeal dialogue between human and machine. Each robot is equipped with a camera and an artificial intelligence that guides its movement, which is in turn driven by the artist's six-year-old daughter June.
The installation works in two stages. The camera looks for a face and when it finds it, it gets to know it, responding to movement with movement. Then in a second step, like a parade, the robot performs a choreography recorded by June in front of the visitors.
Ugo Dehaes seeks to create the wonder or horror of a machine that has become an attraction in front of the public, while questioning the fantasies of its intelligence, here trained by a child.
