As robotic systems become more integrated with society, it is important to understand how humans perceive and accept robots. The Creative Robotics Studio (CRS) aims to accomplish four objectives throughout the course of the project: 1) Better understand how robots can be perceived as agents that have emotional and creative capacity. 2) Design a performance consisting of a narrative sequence of robotic gestures that evoke human empathy and emotion. 3) Draft a toolset which allows artists to realize their creative vision using an industrial arm and animation software. 4) Execute a performance using our toolset to display how the robotic arm gives the artist new creative opportunities.
