Artists selected for our first EMAP residency are Adam Donovan and Katrin Hochschuh. They are working on a production of a new artwork Empathy Swarm focused on anthropomorphic swarm robot behavior using emotion recognition reinforcement which experiments with human-robot social interaction. During their stay in Zagreb and Rijeka, the artists also engage in a range of activities in the local artistic and cultural communities.
During July and August, Adam Donovan and Katrin Hochschuh are continuing their EMAP residency in Zagreb. The artists are producing their artwork Empathy Swarm and researching tools for human emotion recognition and interaction between the man and the machine, working along the road with many different collaborators.
