ABOUT THIS PROJECT


Tell us briefly about your project. Is it a work of art or does it serve another function?

Futuristic vision on the evolution by Baileybots. The artwork shows an organism that has evolved under pressure from humanity. The effects of the industrial revolution parasite on the body, as if it were a virus. Through a hand-shaped sculpture and a virtual design drivetrain, it creates a nice tension between the organic and the mechanical.

When did you start working on this project and how long did it take you to complete?

The object was more or less finished by 2009. It took well over a year to construct. All parts where made using diy cnc machines.

What was your goal in building this project?

The questions focus on the impact of technology on the organism, and raising awareness...

Does your project help to solve a problem? If so what problem?

Just raising awareness...

What makes your idea unique?

One must decide - watch the movie ...

In what capacity are you using bearings and what type of bearings?

In house CNC-machined and fabricated powertrain and suspension in aluminum, steels and brass. The the whole is provided with ball bearings.

What is the most important thing you want people to know about your project?

The artwork shows an organism that has evolved under pressure from humanity. The effects of the industrial revolution parasite on the body, as if it were a virus.

How will you use the $10,000 prize?

There is a lot off (international)attention for the work - unfortunately I'm lacking the means for international transport fees. I'm intending to use it for those purposes.
