Creative Robotics

Creative Robotics is a research unit within the University for Arts and Design Linz that was set up with the goal of investigating robotics as an interface between the digital and physical world.


CR is engaged in arts-based and industrial research covering a wide range of applications, from developing new robotic processes with traditional craftsmen and SMEs to realizing highly visible robot installations with partners from various industries. We want to distribute our knowledge as widely as possible and are therefore highly engaged in research-led teaching at various stages.


We are open to collaborations with researchers, SMEs, artists, designers, inventors, and innovators and invite you to get in touch

TEAM

JOHANNES BRAUMANN

Johannes Braumann is professor for Creative Robotics at UfG Linz, leading an interdisciplinary team of researchers towards exploring robots as an interface between the digital and physical world. As co-founder of the Association for Robots in Architecture, Johannes is tightly linked with both the robotics and design community.

 

He is the main developer of the accessible robot simulation and programming tool KUKA|prc , which is today used by more than 100 universities and 50 companies world-wide.

KARL SINGLINE

Karl Singline is a graduate architect and roboticist from Australia. After graduating from the University of Tasmania with a Master of Architecture, where he played a key role in integrating a KUKA robotic arm into the curriculum for both the school of architecture as well as other faculties and community groups, he launched his popular YouTube channel with over 100,000 views, specializing in tutorials on visual programming and robotics.
 
As a full-time researcher within Creative Robotics, Karl works on personal research as well as partnering with external industry partners to further explore new ways of adapting robotic technologies to architecture and other creative industries.

EMANUEL GOLLOB

Emanuel Gollob graduated in design investigations at the University of Applied Arts, Vienna. Since 2017 he is doing artistic research in the intersection of human-AI interaction, neuroscience and robotic. In collaboration with Johannes Braumann he developed “Robot, Doing Nothing”. From 2018 to 2019 he was working with a multidisciplinary team on the follow-up project “Doing Nothing with AI”, which used a GAN machine learning model trained with EEG feedback to generate robotic movement. Since June 2020 he is part of the Creative Robotics PEEK “FAR – Fashion & Robotics” research team at UFG Linz.

STEPHAN EVERWIN

Stephan Everwin has a background in Automotive and Industrial Design. He started his career at the Porsche Design Studio in Zell am See and has worked on client projects in Architecture, Product and Transportation Design since 2009. With a keen interest in parametric design and digital fabrication his artistic research at Creative Robotics is focused on parametric form studies and synergies at the intersection of digital design ideas and their translation into physical objects.
 
In 2017 Stephan started to investigate parametric clay sculpting techniques with a KUKA robot in his garage – a concept that currently unfolds into larger dimensions at the Grand Garage where Creative Robotics is located.

MARTIN SCHWAB

Martin graduated from the Higher Department of Automotive Engineering at HTBLA Steyr and studied and worked several years in the field of Mechanical Engineering before he decided to study at Kunstuniversität Linz. He has professional experience in Engineering Materials, Lightweight Design and CAX in Process and Product Development. Martin holds a Bachelor’s Degree with distinction in Industrial Design and found his role as Connector at the Interface of experimental Technology and applied Arts.

BENJAMIN GREIMEL

Benjamin graduated with distinction from the Higher Department of Mechatronics of HTL Mödling. After one year as a design engineer in special machine construction, he started industrial design studies at the University of Art and Design in Linz. In 2015, he finished his bachelor’s degree and completed a semester abroad in Medical Design at the Muthesius Art University in Kiel. Since 2016 he is working as research assistant in the Laboratory for Creative Robotics.

 

In 2017, he founded the Creative Robotics spin-off PRINT A DRINK  – the world first 3D printing technology for drinkable liquids.
