Federico Díaz: Outside Itself. Robot-Assembled Sculpture at Venice Biennale 2011

Prague-based artist Federico Díaz is known for his work that combines art and technology. For the 54th International Art Exhibition – La Biennale di Venezia in Venice / Italy he conceived a new work that uses sensors and two industrial robots to create a sculpture created from thousands of black spheres. The installation basically consists of two parts: a zone that is scanned by optical sensors that detect changes in ambient light due to the interactivity of viewers, and a production area with two robots that assemble the sculpture according to the data that they get from the sensors.

We met with Federico Díaz at one of the opening days of the Biennale, to learn more about the idea and the technology behind the artwork. The above video is an excerpt. The complete interview is available after the jump.

The exhibition, curated by P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center Founder Alanna Heiss, is titled Outside Itself and runs through September 30, 2011. Outside Itself is an evolution of Federico Díaz’ installation, Geometric Death Frequency-141, which is on view at MASS MoCA through spring 2012.
