Black Box

The Black Box is a robotic installation, a reference to Vilém Flusser’s concept of the technology that intentionally conceals its inner workings. As its metaphor, by borrowing the body and the senses of a robot, the observer wanders in a maze closed off from the outside world. Unlike virtual reality, this inner universe of concrete has mass, it occupies space, it’s a subset of our physical world. This makeshift symbiosis of flesh and machine becomes complete, when, through its own reflection in a mirror, it emerges as a hybrid being moving in unison with itself.
