PhD Work with Robothespian now on Display at Espacio Fundación Telefónica, Madrid

Following on from the previous post, where my PhD work with the Robothespian was displayed at CCCB, Barcelona from July to December 2022, the exhibition titled Brain(s) (Cerebros in Spanish) has now moved to the Espacio Fundación Telefónica in Madrid.

The exhibition explores humankind’s ongoing fascination with the brain and how history, art, science and philosophy have studied and represented the minds of both human and artificial beings. Just as a recap from the last post, this research project was developed as part of my PhD at the EventLab, Universitat de Barcelona. I developed a telepresence system using the Robothespian as part of the European project, BEAMING. The system allowed participants to ’embody’ a remotely located humanoid robot in real-time and interact with the destination and people in the physical location of the robot.

The exhibition is on From January to June 2023, and this museum has free entry, so make sure you pass by!
