A second artists residency in the University of Hertfordshire is currently being planned, to take place toward the end of the year. The new residency will focus on issues of (perceived) safety, trust, robot behaviours and expressions in robot companions. It will ask how can trust be built between humans and robots and can interactions be made safer. The artists spent a week in a house surrounded by research robots and document their experiences, making artwork in response to the situation and further intervening in the scientific research process. This follows on from the success of their first week spent living in the house, which is in secret location, the longest anyone has ever spent there. See more about that residency here and view the artists’ talks. Several scientific research papers about the research methods developed during the residency are currently being prepared.
