(Dezeen) The digital festival Futur en Seine in Paris from 8 to 10 June was designed to raise awareness of automation, and address people’s “fear and fascination” with robots.
Artist Filipe Vilas-Boas and architect Paul Coudamy’s installation The Punishment was a display of a robotic arm that wrote repeated promises not to hunt humans in artist Filipe Vilas-Boas and architect Paul Coudamy’s installation The Punishment. The artist chose the phrase as a reference to science fiction author Isaac Asimov’s Three Laws of Robotics, devised in 1942 and used as a plot point in a number of his stories.
