ROBOROACH – The Dignity of Creature

Installation and Performance

Madscientist Festival, Naturhistorisches Museum Bern / 4.9.2015

Remote controlled cockroaches: The project dares to cross the border animal ethics by turning shellfishes into automata and visitors into to small gods who can control the animals with a smartphone app at will. To goal is to overcome the paper model worlds and to arrive in the fresh vegetable garden of maybe Switzerland…

Is that allowed? At least the construction set can be ordered anyway, on the Internet. A not free-will Installation performance.

The project was accompanied by discussions of different animal protection organisations.
