The Punishment

The Punishment is an installation in which a robot executes a preventive punishment for its possible future disobedience. A reference to Isaac Asimov’s laws of robotics. Technologies are now merging at high speed, notably robotics and artificial intelligence. It raises a lot of questions about the man-machine relation. Tainted with dark humor, this dystopian anthropomorphization also underlines the fears that robotics engenders. How automated do we want our world, our body to be? What physical, moral and legal framework should we use? What consequences for human life? Which post-work society should we build? Isn't it time to reinvent the school? At the turn of the century, questions related to automation are popping up in everyone’s mind. We will have to answers them collectively, if possible. Watch the video of the installation on
