V&A Dundee’s latest exhibition featuring Star Wars props is set to open tomorrow (Saturday, 2 November).
Titled ‘Hello, Robot’, the new exhibition explores science and fiction of robots and the effect of robots on the world we live in.
During an exploration of the exhibition, visitors will be encouraged to think about the relationship between humans and robots.
Set to be one of the highlights, fans can look forward to catching a glimpse of the original R2D2 prop, on loan from the Lucas Museum of Narrative Art in Los Angeles.
Celebrating the new exhibition, a new architectural commission titled ‘Up-Sticks’ has also been revealed this week, as reported by The Courier.
Created by Gramazio Kohler and students of the MAS Architecture and Digital Fabrication at ETH Zurich, the commission was designed to demonstrate the creativity that can result from humans and robots working together.
Using a human-robotic fabrication technique, ‘Up-Sticks’ is made from over 2,000 planks and beech dowels that curves along the length of the gallery.
Hello, Robot opens tomorrow at the V&A Dundee, running until February 9, 2020.
