NOAR Nordic and Baltic contemporary art platform



3D-print, hand tally counter, plexiglas, custom-made software, sensors and electronics This work poses questions about employment, robotics and quantification. It was inspired by the title of the exhibition in Science Gallery Dublin, HUMANS NEED NOT APPLY, and presents a robotic arm that counts visitors with a clicker, offering a performative representation of the takeover of routine jobs, even in the gallery space. The work also embodies our idolatry of quantification; the obsessive need to count and measure everything. Last century’s automation may have been largely hidden from everyday view, in factories tending production lines, or out in fields tilling the land. In this century, we will confront the reality of automation more intimately, as suggested here — it will be right beside us. The artwork was commissioned by Science Gallery Dublin.
