This artwork, designed as an experience, re-enacts the meeting between the robot Alter and a human being, embodied by the dancer Mirai Moriyama, on the Auckland Live Digital Stage. Together, they create a mesmerising on-screen dance through sharing signals and verbal and body language.

This digital artwork showcases a vision of the future where robots and humans share experiences and at the same time define new ways of coexisting in the world.

Co(AI)xistence has been exhibited around the world and been part of major contemporary art exhibitions. The Auckland Live Digital Stage season is the first time the work has been presented in an outdoor context.

The 12-minute video screens on a daily loop at 11.30 am, 1.30 pm and 4 pm.* 

*Screening times may change due to weather and other factors.
