Chung Tat Sham, Hou Lam Wu:
Online Collective Decision Making Sound Experience

March 12, 18:30

Are we capable of driving the democracy vehicle? Robots is an online sound experience, in which discussions and decision-making among participants shall influence the course of the experience. We shall question the nature of human and artificial beings, as well as the rights of expressing one’s views and decisions for the collective, through a classic play „R.U.R“. Individuals‘ actions shall have an effect and consequence towards themselves, as well as the collective. How does the collision of opinion between yours and the group sound to you? How could the value of collective decision be told by sonic experience?
