Robotronika Symposium: "Mythos Roboter. Facts and Fiction"
Wind-Up Toys: Roboticizing Gender and Race in Cinema and the Toy Store
Vivian Sobchack (20.06.1998)
ROBOTRONIKA Symposium: "Mythos Roboter. Facts and Fiction"
In both the cinema and the toy store, robots literally embody and reflect dominant (and patriarchal) culture's fantasies of technological mastery and intentional agency. Focusing on a selection of science fiction films and robotic toys, my presentation will explore the ideology of this "robotic imagination"--particularly as it has found its concrete and material embodiment in figures deemed to be "less human than human"--the animal, the child, the female, and the racialized Other.

Pygmalion Strikes Back: Stories of Robots, Love and Betrayal at the End of the Millennium
Heidi J. Figueroa Sarriera (20.06.1998)
Pygmalion, king of Cyprus and a well known misogynist nonetheless fell in love with the ivory image of a woman that he himself had carved. The ancient Greek myth tells that Aphrodite acceded to his request that she vivify his creation. Pygmalion married his now animated creation and they had a child. Through out this paper I examine some metaphors used in "popular scientific" discourses about the future of robotic that relaunch some basic mythic figures that have survived over centuries mutating at the postmodern edge. Two are the axis of this discussion : the return of the living dead and the bio-sexual politics of "the final frontier".
Many Robots Soon
Hans Moravec (20.06.1998)
Freely-roaming robots to fetch, clean and do other work have been an elusive fantasy for decades. Finally, in the 1990s, robots that understand their surroundings are beginning to prowl ordinary hallways and offices of research buildings, guided by programs using ever smaller, cheaper and more powerful computers and sensors. It will soon be possible to produce mobile robots that can do useful work in unfamiliar industrial settings. Subsequently, smaller, cheaper and better machines will begin to work in our homes.
Artificial Life through Evolution
Inman Harvey (20.06.1998)
Building artificial animals like robots is just incredibly difficult, and we have failed to produce anything as impressive as the very simplest natural creature. These natural organisms were designed through natural Darwinian evolution - so let's try and learn from this.
Robots can't really be intelligent can they?
Kevin Warwick (20.06.1998)
When the computer Deep Blue beat Gary Kasparov the world chess champion at his own game, the whole question of machine intelligence raised its head again. How does machine intelligence compare with the human form? Does it matter if machines can or cannot think in the same way as humans? For any aspect of intelligence that we can measure, is there one in which a machine will never be better than a human? How important is all this?
Telescoping Totem-pole performance
Chico MacMurtrie (20.06.1998)
The first in a series of totem-poles, to be used in creating a forest of rubber inflatables, the "Telescoping Totem-pole" is an organic robotic sculpture. It is a metaphoric representation of the human form, the sculpture denotes the various forms found in our bodies. As the sculpture grows and recedes the complexities of our internal structure are revealed.
Psycho/Cyber: Involuntary Body, Third Hand And Scanning Robot
Stelarc (20.06.1998)
The performance explores involuntary, improvised and programmed motion. The body's movements are actuated by a computer interfaced muscle stimulation system. 0-60 volts contract the deltoids, biceps, flexors, hamstring and calf muscles, choreographing its limb motions. At the same time the body is able to control its third hand with electrodes positioned on its unstimulated right leg. The ABB IRB 6400 robot is programmed to scan and rotate around the body, counterpointing the involuntary and improvised motion. Cameras positioned above, in front of and attached to the robot arm construct a surveillance system for the performance. Tilt sensors on the body allow it to be the video switcher and mixer. Flexor, pressure, proximity and accelerometer sensors monitor and measure finger and limb position and velocity generating an acoustical analogue of what is witnessed. The sounds of the robot motors and the third hand are amplified using contact microphones...

Digital Decadence? Sex and Taboo in the Information Age
sex net. Sex, Lies & the Internet
Diva Midori (27.05.1998)
Every evolution in information technology has been accompanied by expansion of sexual expression for the masses. As the Information Age accelerates the dissemination of erotic images and ideas, how does this affect the power of taboo and fetish? Is this leading to greater expression of individualism and healthier personal relationships? Or is this leading to callousness and dehumanization?
Feminists Against Censorship – Pornography and Censorship-Issues on the Net
sex net. Sex, Lies & the Internet
Cherie Matrix (01.05.1998)
Feminists Against Censorship was formed in London in 1989 to give a voice to the many anti-censorship feminists who felt they were being silenced by the anti-porn movement, which puported to represent a desire on the part of all women, and all feminists, to censor pornography. To a large extent we see our role as educational, both in terms of making people aware of the long anti-censorship history in feminism and the verying attitudes women hold.
Sex, Lies, and the Internet (and Video and TV too)
sex net. Sex, Lies & the Internet
Constance Penley (01.05.1998)
Pesentation at the controversial event series at Public Netbase.

The efforts to regulate ideas and images on the Internet can be understood only in the context of concurrent attempts to censor art and television. Rather than existing as a world unto itself, cyberspace intersects and overlaps the other electronic realms of video art and television in messy, impure ways. This presentation will offer a case study of the interlocking forms of censorship of the whole electronic realm and suggest some tactics for evading them.

...is a semantically connected content repository, which contains documents on 15 years of new practices in art and media.

Based on an extensive archive going back to 1994 the site collects materials that serve as important reference documents in the field of new media, politics, and art and makes them accessible to a wider public. Instead of a hierarchically structured archive an experimental navigation interface opens up new ways to explore large information nodes. Documents are associated by a range of tag that allow to filter relevance according to topics and issue relations. ASCR, short for Advanced Semantic Content Repository, is the open source information architecture and "editing back end" of Future Non Stop.

Future Non Stop is a project of:
