Cognition Schöffer is an abstract interactive mobil sculpture, dedicated to the pioneer of cybernetic art, Nicholas Schöffer.

The sculpture performs a slow, meditative “dance” based on randomized algorithms, until a visitor steps to the control panel and gives (another) character to the piece. The artwork as a delicate example of engineering and robotics can form any shapes, and gives also an exceptional opportunity for the visitors for self-expression, getting into interaction with each other, or just meditating over the beautiful movements.
