With A Robot On The Last Day (ongoing)


With A Robot On The Last Day imagines the future of robot assisted care. The work originates in an attempt to map the current state of robotic care culture with a compilation of research artifacts from Sociology, Philosophy, Engineering, Robotics, Medicine and other fields.
