Soft Robotics and Posthuman Entities

Mads Bering Christiansen, Jonas Jørgensen, Anne-Sofie Emilie Belling, Laura Beloff

Through collaborative media arts practice we explore texture morphing soft robotics as an artistic medium of expression. We present an installation, Homo Viridis, that features a soft robotic interface developed to mediate signals between a vascular plant and a human body. The exposition paper discusses how Homo Viridis stages a situation of hybridity where individual, more-than-human subjectivities are mentally and physically intertwined.
