VOJEXT S+T+ARTS Residencies Closing Exhibition: join us as we unveil our Residency artists' mesmerising creations !

We are constantly redefining our relationship with AI and robotics.Through research within the robotic industry between March and December 2023, three incredibly imaginative artists have explored the relationship between AI, robotics and arts, and brought new lights to this pluridisciplinary approach .

Artists Calin Segal, Marielena Papandreou and Anna Schäffner focused their creative projects on human-robot interactions in manufacturing companies. On Thursday 18 April and Friday 19 April, they showcase their artworks at Waag, and offer us new perspectives on collaborative creativity and safety in human-robot interaction.

Doors are open from 12:00 till 18:00 hrs, entrance is free.

Meet he artists:

Calin Segal: a Romanian artist and designer based in Paris, focusing on interactive and generative art. Co-founding the In-Dialog collective, he delves into multidisciplinary research at the intersection of art, technology, and design.

Marielena Papandreou: an experienced designer with a background in technical, manufacturing and academic fields. Her artistic research delves into the factors influencing the materialisation of building products, exploring circularity, natural resources and materials utilising algorithmic pathways and digital fabrication techniques.

Anna Schäffner: an Interaction designer, exploring the field of human-computer interaction through a Practice-based PhD at École nationale supérieure des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, France. Her research centers around  soft robotics and the design of deformation as a vehicle for movement, dynamic material adaptation, and expressiveness.

About the residencies

The goals of the VOJEXT S+T+ARTS residencies are twofold: to push for art-driven innovation and societal understanding of human-robot interactions, and to integrate them in industrial manufacturing robotics that work on construction, arts and crafts.

About S+T+ARTS

S+T+ARTS is a European Commissioned initiative that supports and awards the most cutting-edge works of trans-disciplinary European science, art and technology. works. Waag is partner in both VOJEXT and S+T+ARTS.
