Myth and Prosthesis III: Robot, Teach us to Pray

My motivation was to use technology as a cognitive tool to liberate myself. I went back to crucial “pedagogical” events of my childhood, to the first times when my behavior and relationship with reality was repressed, in terms of gender, culture and sanity.  I use the rhythms generated by the robot’s brain to dance and induce a trance state. I use the robot to investigate a self previous to the “pedagogical” events that modified me deeply. This is a utopia of a new way of relating with technology. An empowering way. To create a ritual technology that gives me tools re-code my mind/body in my own terms.
