Abstract This article describes aspects of collaboration between a media artist (Velonaki) and robotics scientists (Scheding, Rye, Stefan Williams, and Durrant-Whyte) who have been working together over the last five years, leading to the formation of a center dedicated to cross-disciplinary research, called the Centre for Social Robotics. Both media arts and robotics have strong research directions in human-machine interaction, using computer technology as a tool to realize their visions. The article begins with a brief review of Velonaki's earlier work in media art, followed by a description of the major interactive autokinetic artwork, Fish-Bird Circle B--Movement C, that was created by the team. The technological realization of the artwork is described, as are aspects of the team's model of collaboration. Finally, the article describes some of their current projects.
