Kiru

www.camouflagetown.tv

As part of the Special Topics in Mechanical Engineering (2000-2001) course at The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, Kiru and its instalation was developed for exhibition at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, New York.  Under the direction of artist Adrianne Wortzel, Kiru was created to allow both the robot itself, and internet users to interact with the museum visitors during the Data Dynamics exhibition (March 22 - June 10, 2001).  Kiru autonomously roamed around the exhibit and the museum lobby entertaining visitors by playing the role of a cultural curmudgeon.  Users were able to control Kiru via the internet through the site www.camouflagetown.tv and make the robot express the will of the user or recite pre-recorded verses.  Various camera installations allowed Kiru to be viewed from different areas of the museum.  In addition, internet users were able to see what Kiru sees through his very own eyes! ...well, ...his "eye" (Kiru is cyclopsian).

This work was funded in part by the Whitney Museum of American Art, the National Science Foundation, and the NSF Gateway Engineering Education Coalition at The Cooper Union.
