FutureFest is Nesta’s weekend festival of radical ideas, compelling talks, and immersive experiences to inspire, excite and challenge perceptions of the future. The most recent festival took place in March 2015 in London.
My Robot Companion was on show with its “familiar head”. This video gives a taste of what occurred during the event, including a short segment with Alex May and HARR1.
Two new exhibition dates:
A new version of “Super-Organism” (above) has been commissioned by the Eden Project in Cornwall to feature in their new “Invisible You. The Human Microbiome” permanent exhibition that will be open from April 27th.
The ever uncanny and ethically challenging “My Robot Companion: Familiar” (right) – last exhibited in this form at the V&A in London – will be on show for both days of FutureFest NESTA’s “flagship weekend of event of immersive experiences, compelling performances and radical speakers” being held at Vinopolis, London (14th-15th March). Alex will be on hand to introduce you to HARR1 (Humanoid Art Research Robot 1) on both days.
