Living and life-like machines

Artist Sascha Pohflepp speaks about his research in synthetic biology as part of his ongoing collaboration with Sheref Mansy for Synthetic Aesthetics. Filmed at the Becoming Transnatural symposium and exhibition, (Amsterdam, March 2011), he argues that "Life-like machines have identity," as he opens up discussion about future machines subject to evolutionary pressures.

Project Synopsis - sheref.mansy - 18.12.10

Title: 
Project Synopsis

Our increasing understanding of what makes something ‘alive’ ultimately holds the promise of creating life-like machines. The ability to cross from non-living components to life questions some of our cultural notions of what constitutes nature and natural systems. Would a laboratory assembled cell fall outside of what is considered natural, even if it displays the same functional features of contemporary life? If not, how would the inevitable evolution of the organism change how we perceive its status?

Why humanoids need humans - sheref.mansy - 8.12.10

Title: 
Why humanoids need humans

 

Embodied processes, form is a necessary constituent of function. Two living things with the same form/shape will likely experience and communicate with their surroundings similarly. But yet, objects are likely more easily perceived by their function rather than their shape. For example, a chair need not be defined by specific dimensions or shapes but rather by the simple criterion "can I sit on it?" Such topics were recently covered in a fascinating seminar by Giulio Sandini (http://sandini.lira.dist.unige.it/). By the way, he is building babybots!
