It is obvious, man kind has already taken flight in search of the next habitable planet in the galaxy. Elon Musk has already revealed the developmental plans for a new city in Mars. Prepossed cost for a flight: £200,000

 

‘There is no space program for nigga’s’

(Q-Tip)

 

The new immigrants will no longer be people from ‘third world countries’ they will be the people from a ‘third world planet’, earth.

When global warming has taken its course, all the raw materials on earth have been depleted and even the air we breath is limited, people will do whatever is necessary to migrate, cross the boarders by any means necessary for a better life.

Character: Immigrant

Part Bot (MiMu gloves),

Part Amazonian women & part alien

Immigrants are presented as a lot of derogative ideas. Using MiMu and other tech, I explore these esthetics

My main collaborator will be Caroline Zheng, a phd student Working with soft robotics, (background: fashion design & wearable tech). 

She will use her current study of programable materials & soft robotics in the context of performance art (LulaBOX).

"As part of my PhD research, I make animated artefacts with soft and bio-inspired robotics materials, which has organic appearance and whose behavior is mechatronically programmable. I sometimes program the kinetic behaviors of these artefacts responsive to human affect cues (through affect sensing). By presenting these artefacts on or off the body in interaction with human, I explore the influence on human emotive experience brought about by these soft, intelligible matters." Caroline Zheng
