The Bestiary of Autonomous Machines



In collaboration with Baptiste Labat, Jonas Ersland, Vincent Thornhill

In the press

The Bestiary of Autonomous Machines is a crowd-sourced research into a future in which people and autonomous machines live together. This bestiary was partly created during a series of workshops with children, students, young professionals and academics at various locations in the Netherlands, the US and during the Istanbul Design Biennial. The participants discussed practical and philosophical concepts in the field of artificial living and developed concepts into a short story, an image and a paper, clay, mechanical or 3D model. Several developed concepts were selected together with existing machine for the digital bestiary and online archive that attempts to document the human understanding, fears and reams on machine autonomy.
