At 6pm on the 22 July, during the Consciousness Reframed, 8th International Research Conference (21 – 23 July 2006) the ‘Sloth-bot’ will be launched as an extension of the Arch-OS project. Sloth-bots are large autonomous robots that move incredibly slowly (between 5mm and 20mm a minute). Sloth-bots, influenced by their interactions with people, imperceptibly reconfigure the architecture. Sloth-bots build on robotic technology developed by Dr Guido Bugmann, famously incorporated into Donald Rodney’s ‘Psalms’ which was exhibited in the South London Gallery as a part of Rodney’s last exhibition entitled ‘Nine Night in Eldorado’, in October 1997. http://www.arch-os.com/
