Only in a perfect world

Kelly Dobson of MIT Media Lab makes hacked machines that respond more to humans and discuss our interation with machines. The videos are like amazing dream informercials.


FROM HER SITE Long before implants, splicing, and cyborgs, people and machines co-evolved as companion species. Critical infoldings happen in the connections between people and machines, and my work in Machine Therapy investigates these engagements. The machines (some made by me, some found) have expressive engaging behaviors, strength of character, negotiative egos and neurotic propensities.

Also good...Screambody.
