What is our perception of a robot’s entity?
We know of specific contexts that form a robot’s raison d’être.
“Habitats such as research laboratories and technology fairs, novels and science fiction films, production lines, and other industrial situations justify the robot’s existence by meeting the functional and aesthetic requirements defined by these specific contexts.”
What if a new context is to be inhabited with the functional and aesthetic requirements of the assembly line? Will these robots eventually become intruders or will they fit in another raison d’être?
In an attempt to stage the output of the industrial mechanical processes in nature, the same repetitive mechanical process freezes into a still and becomes the end product itself. Industrial robots drill, coat, galvanize, sort, solder, assemble in the remote woods, on the riverside at the beach.
