The Oracle is a Mechanical Head That Moves in Response to Mobile Messages

The Oracle is a large-scale robotic head designed by creative Patrick Skrypczak that is able to respond with gestures to mobile messages. The interactive sculpture moves its mechanical jaw to shape the words being sent digitally to the robot as a way to interact with the modern mode of communication.

The robotic head features all the standard facial modes of expression and is able to move its head, eyes and mouth in response to incoming text messages. The Oracle can process the content and read it back. The installation brings to attention the connection between technology and humanity and how both work together or against one another on a daily basis. The Oracle's ability to only be responsive to tech boasts the question of how humans and machines will potentially coexist together.
