Compete with your friends in a robot race – the only catch: you control your robot with your mind – the calmer you are, the faster your robot.



Embracing the irony between meditation and that of a rat race, this interactive piece was created to combine the stress of a race with the calmness of meditation. Participants meditate to move a robot. The harder they meditate the faster their robot goes. The robot stops if they are distracted by a thought – that includes thinking about the race.
