Robotic Fabrication in Architecture and Arts 300 by 200About the project

This project will use data-driven robotic three dimensional routing to produce a sculpture designed to encourage dialogue around agricultural land use and its impact on the fragile coastal zones of central Queensland, and in particular the ecosystem of the Great Barrier Reef.

It provides opportunities for artists to trial and engage with innovative design and emerging robotic technology as tools to create unique artworks. It explores new ways of manufacturing looking at human-machine interface in areas of artificial intelligence, 3D sensor, and human motion capture.

Its aim is to produce a large scale sculpture of critically endangered species, fabricated from eco-friendly materials. A 3D model of an urban landscape from the past using additive manufacturing and a coastal topological map fabricated through robotic cutting and assembly.
