We are bringing a little love and bloom to AI takeover! An intimate sculptural conversation between robots about sympathetic integrations of technology and natural environment. What if the world was taken over by AI robots who see humanity’s sad separation from wilderness… and want to help us find a softer and sweeter way to be in the world? Maybe we find that in our modern tech race to create mimetic human intelligence…this intelligence eventually leads us back to the cuter, kinder, and more compassionate parts of our humanity.
