Autotelematic Spider Bots
Showing at AV Festival 06, an Electronic Arts festival in the UK.
Autotelematic Spider Bots is an installation by Ken Rinaldo and Matt Howard.
The spiders interact with the human observers, each other and their environment.
Ken says: “My work is related to research of living systems. I am interested in the intertwined symbiosis of all living things at all levels and scales.”
According to John Marshall's Designed Objects the spiders were a bit confused at the opening by the crowds but tey settled down after it quieted down.
