Yu Kao

Yu Kao’s robotic artwork takes a critical view of human and computer interaction. The source of inspiration for this interactive work stemmed from various concepts of imperfection and impromptu, unrehearsed performances. By witnessing a number of intriguing street performances, the idea of manifesting spontaneous imperfection in a robot form was conceived. The aim of this interactive work was to harness a similar appeal to the performers through creating a robot that would engage with users’ curiosity and interest.
