Performance - Dan Civico    Dan 


Dan Civico’s contribution to Design Event 09  was the video installation 'Hope' running in a 3-minute loop in a Newcastle city-centre storefront.   At the time local car maker Nissan had announced substantial redundancies, and Dan’s response was to postulate on “what do the robots do when the factory is quiet? “ and to suggest one scenario to be this interaction between an ‘inspector’ robot and an ‘apprentice’ robot.


AitM provided robots and programming.   The robots were programmed to run in their own continuous, interleaving cycles thus making it very easy to do repeat shots of differing perspective, further simplifying the edit.




The shoot:
