Nominated for Prix Ars Electronica 2012, Polish artist Karina Smigla Bobinski's ADA is a giant interactive analogue installation, a physical coding experience which the artist and audience create together. ADA is a huge membrane-like globe that floats freely in the gallery space. Attached to the membrane are pieces of coal that leave their traces on the walls, ceiling and floors as the ball is pushed around by you, the gallery visitor. Constructed to have her own will, ADA does not follow programmes or commands but is an autonomous artwork enhanced by the people's reaction to her.
With Karina's large scale interactive installation taking ownership of a specially made gallery space in FACT, we found out more about the artist and her work.
Karina is a Polish artist who lives and works in Germany. We
have had a look at her wide portfolio of work and it varies hugely
from the helium filled ADA to a goldfish projected onto a
theatre in Munich. A common thread is the mixed reality that she
brings to everyday materials and situations and the importance of
the involvement of the viewer. You can find images of a selection
of her works in the related media.
The FACT building is transformed into a world of virtual portals, talking robots and giant floating orbs for our next exhibition.

exhibition, Robots and Avatars. Co-curated with
interdisiplinary design collective, body>data>space, the exhibition showcases
some of the most exciting crossovers between art and technology in
the realms of robots and avatars.
Virtual words are increasingly spilling into our everyday lives,
and equally we inputting ourselves more and more into the virtual.
The exhibition explores this id…
Are you being served? Richard Lyall looks at the relationship between humans and robots, and asks: who's in control?
It remains perhaps one of our greatest fears as a race. The
thought that machines we have created somehow outgrow their design,
and take over. Much early science fiction, especially at the dawn
of robotics, is dominated by this theme: humans and machines locked
in mortal combat to become the master race.
Let's come out of interplanetary orbit and bring this down to
earth. How many machines will you directly interact with today?
Around the house? At work? And indirectl…
