The Character Files present theoretic texts, thoughts, essays and interviews of Pictoplasma’s past and present research – in no particular order – while we continue to examine the possibilities (and limits) of contemporary character representation.
Latest entry: BRIAN DUFFY, researcher in the field of social humanoid machines, discusses the validity of the concept of the Uncanny Valley. Conceived in 1970 in the fields of robotics, it offers a model to explain human attraction and repulsion to machines and artificial life. It has been influential especially for humanoid robotics, but also animation film and its hyperreal aesthetics.
