Installation: Robots in Residence

If robots can build cars and bomb people in foreign countries, why wouldn’t they be able to make documentary films one day?

How would a robot approach its documentary subject? What questions would it ask? What problems would it face and what advantages would it have? These are just some of the questions that robot artist Alexander Reben and experimental filmmaker Brent Hoff will try to answer as part of the fifth anniversary of the IDFA DocLab program. For the Robots in Residence Project, Reben designed a series of small documentary robots that will be set free for the duration of the festival. They will roam around the Expanding Documentary exhibition, looking for interesting people and things to document. Feel free to interact with them and answer some of their questions. During DocLab Live: Reality vs Future on Monday, November 19, Reben and Hoff will present the project and premiere a rough cut of its first ever robot-made documentary.
