2013 Australia Council for the Arts Digital Writing Residency: Robot University

The Cube's first Production Residency, partnered with the Australia Council for the Arts Literature Board, was an open call opportunity to writers working within the digital landscape.

This residency opportunity sought an innovative project that immersed the practice of writing into the interactive, multi-user digital display environment of the Cube.

Christy Dena was awarded this inaugural residency (also becoming an adjunct professor in the Creative Industries Faculty) for the term of her residency. Christy's project Robot University will challenge our perceptions of robots by exploring our responsibility to build ethical and mutually beneficial relationship with them.
