Alienated Routine is a suspended sensible behavioral robotic sculpture connected to a circular animation. The users presence activates the routines of the piece.
The sculpture has a shape of 6 unified fingers that is representing the humanity society, while the animation connected is the city where the sculpture lives that is representing a symptomatic city of the 21st century. The person who activates the routines is representing the power.
When the people approach to the installation, the sculpture and the animation starts to turn around in orbital movements generating alienated routines by a defence mechanism built for it. The spectator’s presences disestablish and disturb the sculpture.
The piece is a reflection and a metaphor on the system society of the 21th century; it searches to perform a new representation of it by using semiotic symbols that metaphors the alienation movements and process lived by an actual society.
The work is financed by MIS Museu da Imagem e do Som and developed in HANGAR medialab in Barcelona, Spain. It is an exchange program between Hangar and MIS.
