The Poetic Robotism project series, started in 2009, is the result of creative collaboration between artists Eva Vēvere and Laura Prikule.
Poetic Robotism is a work method, probing binary oppositions (poetic/robotic, systemic/individual, real/imaginary etc.) and thus speaking of the ‘paradox point’ as a specific location in the area of our perception where opposites overlay but their outlines are erased. One of the goals is to establish a playground for new levels of all sensory experience and intellectual reflection. The media chosen to convey the general principles of Poetic Robotism is cube – hexahedron, various cubical ideas are implemented in different situations and locations. Many of the ideas carried out address the issues of art in public or public space. Poetic Robotism itself is a collaborative practice and often the spectator also becomes the participant. Some of these projects have taken place outside the confines of the customary gallery spaces, places accessible to the passer-by. In most of the occasions though it is the involvement of the public that blends the ‘art-space’ and the public space.
