A Zoo Of Artificial Life: Worlds First Robotarium

Conceived for a public garden made as a large glass structure housing 45 Robots nearly all powered by photovoltaic energy others are powered thru the ceiling or the floor. All of the Robots were built especially for this project. There are 14 distinct species distinguished by 3 types of behaviours; Obstacle avoidance, movement of sunlight detection and interaction with the public. Robotarium X is a new kind of Art work, inwhich the Artist Leonel Moura is critically questioning nature, life, the artificial, culture and Science.
