Robot Design – The modern art world continuously undergoes constant innovation in terms of design, mediums, and technological advances. In today’s time and society, it seems that technology is playing an important part in creating the future of art and design. Recently, artists are pairing up with techies to meld the worlds of art and technology. In particular, Swiss architects Gramazio & Kohler and autonomous systems technician Raffaello d’Andrea have banded together to create an architectural piece with robots.

Their latest project, “Flight Assembled Architecture,” is using a system of programmed flying robot machines to create a sculptural piece by flying foam blocks into a 20 foot tall structure. These beautifully crafted flying contraptions are an extension of the artists at hand using them in a way that could be the future of the art world. Will we live in a society where the artist becomes obsolete and talent will be based in the hands of the inanimate, the robot? Art is ever-changing, and with the rise of technology being folded into the mix of the art world, one wonders what will become of art and the artist.

    I agree with you that there is a lack of craftsmanship today. However, I think that if the eenignering and programming end of the robitics is done with care and precision, it could benefit the detail of a design. It could show ‘craftsmen’ that their work can be replaced by a machine because of their lack of attention to detail. Vision sensors on robots could recognize the color or shape of a brick and be capable of things like patterning a masonry wall… something we don’t see too often anymore. Maybe this would drive craftsment to compete and rediscover their skills that we pay them for?
