The meta-project robot partner aims towards understanding the basics and relations of partnership, between living beings as well as between humans and machines.
The project deals with the contemporary ideals, ideas and images of improvement ("Fortschritt"). The goal of the project is to re-do the development of automated service systems by artistic approach. It's not about finding answers but about marking questions. The living table installation on one hand shows possible applications of service-automation in everyday life with a focus on the absurdity of the result, on the other hand with a focus on the poetic moment which emerges out of this absurdity and thereby offers the spectator a possibility for reflexion about his own position.
