BUDDHA I

Concept

By the development of technology, mankind has already lost work to the machine. In the age of the fourth industry, humanity has fears about artificial intelligence. This work indicates how people think and worry about artificial intelligence and how the artists expect about the bright future with the technology as menkind. Lovot lab wants to suggest the different perspective of the brand new machine. Based on artificial intelligence technology, they create artworks to present zeitgeist.
Buddha I is the installation which is composed of main sculpture which is a buddha-like sci-fi figure on the octagonal pedestal, illuminating obelisk-like sculpture, and light tubes like fluorescent lights on concrete cylinder illuminating brilliant light surrounding the environment of the work.
The kid size robot does lotus position on the octagonal pedestal surrounded by many illuminating standing tubes interacting with itself and stares at audience in front and recognizes and analyzes their age, mood and sex from the their face by the artificial intelligence technology. From the analysis data, the robot tells a short sentence like fortune cookie generated by artificial intelligence from messages posted by human being on the Internet.
Illuminating digital obelisk titled “the monument of robot ethic charter” stands in front of the robot buddha. In 2007, korean ministry of commerce, industry and energy planned to establish robot ethic charter at the first in the world. However, the expert group for redacting the document only made a draft and could not formalize it. To memorize the important sentences disappearing in the mists of history, the binary data of the draft is embedded in the monument and is rendered on lights in the infinity mirrors on the sculpture’s surfaces.
The lighting tubes surrounding the whole installation interact with the robot buddha. Lights change color when the buddha recognizes the face of audience and speaks messages and reflect the aura of the robot buddha.
