After success of the Pig robot, Zoran and I got invited for another robotic project by Kapelica gallery in Ljubljana. Continuing with the animal theme, we decided that the next robot should be a horse. Kapelica specializes in bio art, se this one was to have some biological component as well. We chose microbial fuel cells as such element. In the final piece, we had a life size horse moving its four legs based on movement and proximity sensors and signal from a microbial culture.
V zavetrju časa

V zavetrju časa was a multi-media spatial installation by Meta Grgurevič and Urša Vidic, loosely based on the novel To the lighthouse by Virginia Woolf. It was on display on June 2016 in Ljubljana Puppet Theatre and included lights, sound, music, video, performance and kinetic objects. If you have already read other articles about my projects with Meta and Urša, you probably guessed that my role in this project was the automatisation of the kinetic objects.

A tree enclosed in a glass bottle, with fog periodically filling and vacating the bottle, conjuring up images of misty mountains in China where the immortals live. Glassworks #1 was an independent project by Urša Vidic for the 2016 edition of Svetlobna gverila lights festival in Ljubljana. I got involved because I agreed to participate in V zavetrju časa where this piece also appeared.

I have been thinking about the meaning of everything. It seems to me that the important things are 1) to climb the highest mountain, 2) to penetrate a wild uncharted jungle to rescue a gentleman in distress, and 3) to stand under the midnight sun on the south pole.

Through a common friend (thanks Ra!), I heard that Zoran Srdić of The Gulag Institute for Contemporary Arts and Cultures needed some assistance with electronics. He was already involved in a long series of works about pigs and men, and for the newest part he wanted to create machine pigs and machine men. As I had never really built a robot before, I though this would be a great opportunity to have some impact on that field as well. So I signed up for the project.
