At the heart of our laboratory is an innovative shared practice uniting an ensemble of artists, engineers, designers and scientists. Our studio is an incubation pool giving birth to new philosophical insights, technical innovations and cultural evolution.
We are hijacking robotic technology as a form of human expression rather than a tool. This is our medium, we use sensors, algorithms, kinetic and intelligent systems with the traditions of puppetry, and hand crafted material. The material and embodied nature of robotics along with the power of motion allows us to trigger involuntary emotional reflexes.
We have struck a nerve.
We are diving deep for the long term. Designing new tools, new technologies and new integrated processes with a fresh set of values. We have bought a building, we are training interns and we are looking to bring new minds to dive in.
We are Rusty Squid.
