Promoting Cuddles at STATE Festival
Promoting cuddles considers how public messages in the future may be displayed, in order to support care relations in a world co-inhabited with sentiment machines. Three robots will be there to interact with in the robot animals petting zone.
STATE Festival 2016 brings to you the latest developments, works and actors from the intersection of current emotions research and artificial intelligence. Expect a two days program of inspiring talks, stimulating discussions, artworks, films and performances. Hands-on workshops and interactive installations will give you the opportunity to get involved. Meet and exchange with international experts and upcoming creatives from the fields of science, art and culture at the main festival location: Kühlhaus.
Emotions are a fundamental source of our most personal experiences in the world and motivations to act, as well as a central element of interaction with others. They have been considered the essence of what it means to be human, and what it means to be you.
