Never love a Magnet,


Acrylic, servo motors, foam, vinyl stickers, aluminium, quartz, iron filings, pololu chip.

Two smoked glass quadrilaterals face each other. Like aquariums, each of them is inhabited by a robotic hand. Both hands attract and communicate, knowing that they can never meet, that falling in love is impossible. Between them a poem on the ground explains the reason why they will never be able to fall in love. It was not written by a human, but by an artificial intelligence, according to an algorithmic poetic logic. Like a melancholic love song or a sad love parade between machines, both hands reproduce the movement of the fingers on a keyboard, constantly tapping the words that separate them.
