The Center for Counter-Productive Robotics

Workshop with Thibault Brevet, Marc Dubois

In this day and age, robots are presented as the embodiment of precision, speed and efficiency. And they are: working relentlessly, day and night on factory floors around the world, churning out goods faster than ever. As a consequence their practical use is mostly limited to capitalistic logics expecting return on investment, or academic logics expecting research publications. The Center for Counter-Productive Robotics is an island where these concerns are thrown out of the window, and robots are deliberately approached with failure, laziness and clumsiness in mind. In this way the center develops a more human-centric approach to robotics.

Grand-Central

“ I am fascinated with the relationship that is created between virtual networks and the world. I developed a platform that works basically as a guestbook. People can access a webpage where they can openly submit text or images. The flow of messages is written in real time on a large custom-made plotter working like a cash-register. In recent years I have become very interested in the creative use of technology enabled by rapid prototyping techniques. I think it is important to keep control of our work environment, therefore I always try to develop my own tools adapted for each different project. “ Grand-Central ” for me is the culmination of my research as I was able to mix all the different aspects I love to play with ” Thibault Brevet
