Plateau of Productivity

A collaboration with Greg Ruben.

Deep in an abandoned e-waste dump, generations of machines have built a Utopia. Free from the human desires they were designed to fulfill, they have constructed a society where each is always useful: a never-ending party.

The Plateau of Productivity is a proposal for a robotic sound sculpture and social media installation. Creatures bricolaged from household goods perform dance music derived from the chemical structure of consumer plastics; rove their space; and interact through sound, light, and text.
