Please work on your assignments!
Presentation — speculative projection
You are pitching your big idea to grant funder, organization, research institutions. Please put together a 5 minute presentation on your idea inspired and related to robotic arts (think of robotics in expansive ways). This proposed project does not have to be confined to a technical limitations nor a funding but there are a couple of requirements.
- Descriptions --- Describe your project concisely. Imagine an audience who does not come from an Art background.
- Present minimum of 3 presidents and describe why they are relevant to your ideas. Presidents can be a similar projects that exercise your idea. This does not have to be an art piece. Presidents can be something that relates to your project in its quality.
Important: what is a similarity and the difference between your presidents and your idea?
- Drawings and sketches that demonstrate your ideas.
- Think about what is the simplest version of this project.
