In EID111: Design, Illusion and Realty: Robotics and Theater students from the Art, Architecture and Engineering Schools worked in interdisciplinary teams to develop projects revolving around robotics and theater. Each team developed a dramatic scenario which could be acted out by robots. Instructors put forward materials on the history of robots in film and theater, from Karel Capek's R.U.R. to Star Wars. Projects included plays, performative works and robotic inventions and culminated in a telerobotic exhibition at The Whitney Museum of American Art in the Spring 2001, where a robot roamed the museum and was controlled by viewers over the web who were in communication with physical visitors.
