Brain Schematic Lecture

This is a lecture about a robot community project influenced by Raoul Vaneigem's book "The Revolution of the Everyday Life." The described project will be an attempt to simulate whether his theorized causes of our own alienation from modern life is true by observing the robots described in the lecture. The lecture is a scientific attempt at solving psyhological problems that prevent people from being happy. The work is a performance art piece. This is the start of a project that I intend to continue with a series of lectures but I have not as yet brainstormed how this lecture series will take shape.

Pickle Array

This video is an experiment with pickles and electronics. The setup is using the same circuit as Night Rider the robot Kit used to show his presence as the sentient car. This particular test lasted 20 min before the pickles burnt out. Kosher pickles last the longest and are the best.
