Hands On (working title)
- 22.05 > 26.05.2023
In artificial intelligence and robotics research, researchers often claim that the process of engaging in developing machines that imitate human behavior will make us ultimately understand more about what makes us human — our senses, our feelings and our intelligence. Haptic technology refers to any technology that can create an experience of touch. What can insights from the field of haptic technology research teach us about our hands?
This is the first research residency for a piece planned for 2024. The piece should be a reflection on the historic transformation of our hands, while leading the audience through a dramaturgy that focuses on the experience and imagination of their own sense of touch.
