About h0t club
During h0t club’s 16-week residency at Thoughtworks Arts and CounterPulse the artists developed performing robots who respond to sensors and cameras placed throughout CounterPulse’s project space moving autonomously and communicating with one another via a wireless network. This hybrid virtual/physical network of human and non-human agents is influenced and guided by the emergent behaviors of the system’s inhabitants.
This showcase is an extension of their previous work:
CounterPulse is a space for art and community in the Tenderloin district of San Fransisco, California. CounterPulse provides resources for emerging artists and cultural innovators, serving as an incubator for the creation of socially relevant, community-based art and culture.
