a human camera


Camrobot is a project where I transfer my body to a picture-taking machine.

With a screen and lens mounted on my body, I will walk around and provide service to anyone. People can press my head to take pictures. The pictures will then uploaded to Instagram and displayed on a screen on my body.

“Huiyi” Camera is so far the most intelligent camera. It adjusts with you wills, automatically add filter for your pictures and upload to Instagram for you.

“Camerobot” plays with the idea that machines — camera in particular, are mediating and even dominating our senses and the way we experience the world.
