From the observation of a society of capuchin monkeys and thought experiments borrowed from theater, Zaven Paré, artist and researcher in interaction design, specialist in theater and robotics, attempts to dismantle the pitfalls of anthropomorphization, in an attention that seeks to preserve the irreducible character of an interspecific copresence.
Zaven Paré (born 1961 in Paris) is an artist and researcher in interaction design. He is at the origin of the first electronic puppets used in theater. He has been a collaborator of the Robot Actors Project and a fellow of the Japan Society for Promotion of Science. His machines feature in several international collections.
