Anthropod Tales (Video Work), 2009

Anthropod Tales from Jessica Field on Vimeo.

Anthropod Tales is a collection of videos based on the five Walking Anthropod Robots and presents itself like a Fairy Tale. These fairy tales are based on programmed robots that have each been given a tragic flaw. They are all autonomous and capable of acting out their part as described in the story. The robots were built and programmed first with the video serving as an interpretation of their final behaviours. Robot designs were copied from all three of Karl Williams How to build a robot books (Insectronics, Ambhibionics, and Build Your Own Humanoid Robots). They were then modified. All programming, electronics, and circuit board designs are from Jessica Field.
