One of a series of ‘futurist films’ by global design collective Universal Everything exploring human-machine collaboration through performance and emerging technologies. To wit:

A dancer teaches a series of three robots (in this case, Izzy) how to move. As the robots’ abilities develop from shaky mimicry to composed mastery, a physical dialogue emerges between man and machine – mimicking, balancing, challenging, competing, outmanoeuvring…

…killing all humans, etc.

Previously: More Than Human


An installation by global design collective Universal Everything currently running at the Barbican in London as part of the AI: More Than Human exhibition.

Visitors are presented with a gyrating, wiggling abstract animation that tracks and mimics their movements via 47,000 possible variations.

The animation becomes more agile as it learns the specific movements of the observer. The exhibition runs until the end of August, if you’re passing.
