Experiments in Synthetic Psychology
Valentino Braitenberg was an Italian neuroscientist and cyberneticist who wrote a book called, Vehicles: Experiments in Synthetic Psychology. In the book, he describes hypothetical vehicles comprised of motors, sensors and other components. Each vehicle inherits components from the previous until they exhibit identifiable behaviors such as aggression, cowardice and love.
The ongoing project’s objective is to build and animate Braitenberg’s vehicles, the result is a beautiful, enigmatic experience.
