Please join us for this exciting session on Creative Robotics with Petra Gemeinboeck via the link below.
TMT Seminar:  Wednesday 26th at 4:30pm
In this talk, Petra will introduce her artistic practice with a focus on her collaborative work in creative robotics and how it seeks to open up relational spaces of negotiation with the nonhuman. Accomplice (2013-16) is an architecture-scale robotic installation that nestles a troupe of restless, ‘curious’ robots, equipped with a powerful punch, into the walls of a gallery. Machine Movement Lab (MML, 2015-) is an ongoing research project that investigates how machines can look, learn and affect us beyond a human veneer by harnessing performers’ movement skills and kinesthetic experiences. Dancing with the Nonhuman (2019-) develops a relational practice of performance-making to probe into the aesthetic potential of embodied meaning-making across human-nonhuman domains: when movement dynamics meet kinesthetic empathy and an object becomes more than an object.
Petra Gemeinboeck is an artist and creative researcher who works across the fields of creative robotics, performance and feminist theory, engaging questions of embodiment and agency in human-machine relations. She is a researcher member of the Centre for Transformative Media Technologies. Previously, she created interactive installations, virtual environments and locative media works. Her works have been exhibited internationally, including at the Ars Electronica Festival (AT), International Triennial of New Media Art (CN), MCA Chicago, GoMA, Brisbane, ICC Tokyo, and State Museum of Contemporary Art Thessaloniki. Petra has recently been awarded an ARC Future Fellowship to develop her ‘Human-Robot Experience (HRX)’ approach (2020-2024) and also leads the FWF PEEK artistic research project ‘Dancing with the Nonhuman’ at the University of Applied Arts Vienna (2019-2022). She previously led the ARC Discovery Project ‘Performative Body-Mapping’ (2016-2019). Before joining Swinburne, Petra was Senior Lecturer at Art & Design, University of New South Wales (2009-2020), where she was Director of Postgraduate Research, and Deputy Director of the Creative Robotics Lab, National Institute for Experimental Arts (NIEA).
