We’ve been in Brussels! Julian and Boris have been developing the production side of the project, working through planning and management for the residency, as well as future planning and direction. Then Julian presented a workshop looking at Augmentation Aesthetics at the LUCA School of Art.
He challenged participants to make a socially integrated solution within the ideas of anthropocene and social design. There were some great results including an autonomous robot garden for Brussels. This farm garden would drive around the city and use machine learning to do things such as using open data from the city to navigate to poorer areas where there is less access to fresh vegetables, and to look for sun based on data gathered from its own solar panels. Great to hear such inspired ideas!
