Vision Machines
“Vision Machines is all about tools that force people to look at art. In my current research on using robots to look at art, I question how people look at art. Is it possible to force someone to really see a work of art? Must a viewer be open to a subject to be critical and enjoy a painting? Such questions arise from the current debate on whether a work of art can only be meaningful for people who want to delve into it.”

Perfect View
the viewer encounters a badly damaged Cloisonné vase, mounted on a white plinth. When the viewer comes within a few meters of the piece, the vase begins to turn silently, adjusting its position so as to always show the viewer a perfect view of its undamaged side.
