»If humans weren’t so incredibly amazing, it wouldn't be so difficult to teach machines to imitate them.«
Maria Arlamovsky about ROBOLOVE
«We’re not nearly as exciting and individual as we like to think.»
The fear that our working world and love life could soon be overrun by humanoid machines is matched only by our fascination with the people attempting to program their artificial replicas and overcome the limitations of physical existence. Maria Arlamovsky has once again embarked upon a voyage towards our future. In ROBOLOVE she examines the ambitions and limitations in research and development – and poses the question of why all the prototypes are female, pretty and friendly.
