Oribotics [network]

The next evolution of Oribotics will be oribotics [network]. Supported by Arts Victoria’s arts innovation fund. The work will premiere at Federation Square in Melbourne in October 2007. The work will consist of a new generation of folding robots that each have built in wifi and bluetooth networking.

The core project team is Matthew Gardiner and Ray Gardiner, the team that delivered the earlier two versions. We are extending the team in the production stage with an industrial design/fabrication company. I met the guys at Design Sense when working on Phillip Adam’s Origami work. They fabricated several large scale folding sets from small prototype designs, and so on that basis Design Sense will work on refining the design of the prototype robots to the final polished products.

Our project partners are Federation Square who are providing:
Studio space for the development of the work
Exhibition space in the Atrium

Aphids are auspicing the project, encompassing project and financial management, as well general support and assistance in securing additional funding or support from other arts bodies. All round good guys!
