Mattias, Sara and Ylva participated in this years ArtBots exhibition in Dublin. On site we held interviews with all the artists on their perspectives on working with robotics materials and their thoughts on ethical issues related to robotics. We also kept a small area open for gallery visitors to reflect upon questions like "Why should we be afraid of robots?" and "Why do we love robots?" and put them up on a wall as post-its, for other visitors to view.
