 LoneBox is a lonely, isolated robot that yearns for attention. Its circuitry is cased by a hollow wooden cube with a frosted acrylic top. When alone, it calls out sadly and glows a cool blue. However, when LoneBox detects movement within its proximity, it slowly begins to glow a warm pink, chirping and singing in delight. When LoneBox can no longer detect movement, the glow slowly fades back into its sad state. The goal of this project is to disturb common realities by making people question the empathy they may feel towards an anthropomorphized, inanimate object.
