Soap Opera, an installation commissioned by V&A Dundee, is specifically meant to replicate a sense of the wonder and playful child-like intent that blowing bubbles instils in us. AATB ask us to consider whether using a robotic arm can still capture the pleasure and delight of blowing bubbles, as well as creating new and imaginative uses for industrial robots. The robot itself has been programmed to
create a series of carefully planned movements, with the aim of creating a mesmerising and contemplative installation, which points towards the fragility of what we consider human
in the robotic age.
