VIDEO POST relaunches Lasermice dyad by So Kanno, where a number of small robots express their state through lasers that emit two colors, one green and one red. Each robot changes its status depending on the color detected from the robots nearby. “These two states, which affect each other and change dynamically, remind us of the bipolar state change in human gregarious behavior, the spread of riots, political polarisation, and the infection of virus” (So Kanno via).
