Media Representing Visual Arts

Peter Goodall
1990 Media Information Australia  
In the context of cinema, appearance, as well as the interaction modality of a humanoid robot can play a crucial role in the perception of robots before and after short-term interactions.  ...  People cannot escape their own social identity, which heavily impacts their work and decisions: people themselves, and all their interactions, are embodied within and therefore fundamentally impacted by  ...  It can be seen that that new versions of the artificial person in science fiction literature and film cannot escape many of the representational patterns of older texts.  ...
