Created by London based experimental architecture and design studio Minimaforms, this project is speculative life-like robotic environment that raises questions of how future environments could actively enable new forms of communication with the everyday.

The artificial intelligent creatures have been designed with the capacity to learn and explore behaviours through interaction with participants.

The tracking and the machine awareness of participant(s) is enabled through Kinect and data scanning with Processing.

These allow identification of visitor presence within the physical space.

Real time camera streams are processed and coupled with blob tracking and optical flow analysis to locate positions and gestural activity of participants.

In addition to the Processing sketch for the installation, the team have also been developing more complex future scenario situations where through simulation possible behaviour patterns could be analysed and further refined.

The project was recently shown at the FRAC Centre and Theodore Spyropoulos, Minimaforms co-founder and AADRL director, will be speaking at the next edition of Resonate festival taking place between 3 and 5 April 2014 in Belgrade.
