I'm an artist, who's making silver jewelry, and I'm always looking for new inspirations and directions, in which I can include in my projects.
How did your interest in robots /
It was Love that pulled me towards robots ;) I had a healthy (like normal girl) interest in robots; watching films, reading science-fiction novels, and for a long time ago I was also writing sci-fi stories, and so on. When my son wanted to have remote controlled raven, I started to do a more intensively searching for any kind of automatic machines.
I came up with the idea that I could make myself any kind of a moving bird by using materials I know from my work as a jewelry designer, and mixing it with wood, plastic etc. In the beginning I was only looking for old moving toys, puppets and any vintage automats. But later on I found inspiration in kinetic sculptures, bizzare machines, steampunk and cyberpunk gadgets. As an natural consequence of whole this searching, I finally felt romance for ROBOTS;)
What kind of actions needs to be done in
the community to increase the interest and the awareness of robots
Personally my knowledge in artificial intelligence is not yet so advanced to know what are the needs of today in this topic. But as a mom of two bright boys, I think it would be nice if kids were given an access to knowledge, in a friendly way, so they more easily could make robots by themselves. That would be nice :)
