Tantrum Export

 

In this piece, Tantrum Export, the crying robot shakes as it moves around the room, it knocks over block and moves around the people in the  space. This robot was inspired by Paul Ford's Anxiety Box where Ford outsources his anxiety to a spambot. Tantrum Export plays on Fords ideas of delegating a frustrating activity to a robot. This piece looks at the role of new parents and the communications we have with children and how the barriers to effective communication begin early on in the relationships between adults and children.
