  2. "The Optimization of Parenthood" is a robot arm which reacts whenever a baby placed in the bassinet cries or awakes from sleep. Developed by Addie Wagenknecht of NORTD Labs as a "speed project" during a one-week residency at the STUDIO for Creative Inquiry at Carnegie Mellon University.

    Mothers are often expected to be full time parents. This is sometimes due to lack of options, the cost of childcare or the lack of family support. As a result, the mother often loses the very creative practice she has spent an entire life building. Being a stay at home parent without help is literally like having four full time jobs in a row, all the time, without weekends or evenings off. And yet, if a women was to spend 24 hours a day doing anything else, all the time, without stopping, people would think she was insane. Parenting, for whatever reason, is exempt from this insanity.

    In order to optimize as much of the routine tedious monotony of parenthood as possible and make it an option for all women to have both her creative work and children we must optimize the process of parenting. The automatic repetitive task can be transferred to other devices, without affecting 'the development of the baby'. This frees the mother to do their creative work without having to factor or budget for the high cost of childcare or feel she is pigeonholed into the role because it is simply 'a women's nature'.

  4. We are approaching velocities that are quite satisfying to watch. Many of you have asked for more cutting videos and performance information. This is 4mm (1/6"), three layer, softwood plywood cutting at 2000mm/min. In other tests we were also able to quite easily cut 10mm of plywood in one go.

    This video was originally screened in a very serious white-cube type room at the deCordova Museum and Sculpture Park and Museum at the 2012 deCordova Biennial.

    This excerpt covers:
    - moving from idea, to sketch, to fundraising, to build
    - the hundreds of people involved
    - some reactions from people in a park in Cleveland OH in the summer of 2011 (excuse the background noise)
    - And then #occupy started...
