MUDA, Museum of Digital Art, Zurich, 2016-2017
The two professor architects Matthias Kohler and Fabio Gramazio caught international attention by building physical structures with algorithms, sensors and robots. The exhibition, developed in collaboration between the Museum of Digital Art and the ETH Zurich, showcases pivoting works of the duo as well as two robotic installations designed for this occasion. The four month exhibition negotiates the borders between science and art, shows how drones build walls, robots play with sand and styrofoam spheres defy gravity.
