micro.adam & micro.eva
"Then the eyes of both of them were opened, and they perceived that they were naked". (Genesis 3.7) Like Adam and Eve in paradise became conscious and had to leave the garden, now micro.adam and micro.eva, two machines, are about to cross the border. The main intention of this work is to find a way to visualize and analyze the complex processes of cognition, communication, and adaptation of living systems. Both robots, circular in design and only different in their inner complexity, are placed in a reduced environment. The robots are limited to one degree of freedom, the (double meaning) rotation about themselves.
