Snapshot: Los Angeles

Los Angeles and street art were made for one another. The second largest city in the United States is a sprawling metropolis that is well known for its cultural diversity and ties to the film industry.

Robot in Residence
Ritualizing Care

The Goethe-Institut Montreal is hosting a NAO robot and, together with its local partners Milieux, Hexagram and Eastern Bloc, invited young scientists and artists to submit creative project proposals using the robot. The residency went to a group of local artists and researchers. The Montreal collective calls for robotic machines to be treated as sentient forms of existence. Their goal is to give the robot NAO, using algorithms and computational techniques from the fields of artificial intelligence, artificial life and generative art, all the means to develop its very own inner world.
