From now on, the team of StreetArt agency can rightfully call themselves Frankensteins, as they created life from something inanimate. An interactive promotional installation for MRSK Ural appeared at INNOPROM-2013, supported by S.G.T.R.K media-lab.
The brief was to make technical details of MRSK Ural interesting to the people strange to power engineering. The result was a success.
“Nothing functions without a man in this confined world” was the motto of the Iron People project that was created by StreetArt agency. The team spent 120 hours assembling anthropomorphous robots out of 2 kilometers of wires that are used by MRSK Ural in their line of work. Iron People resemble human bodies, and together they form an open circuit. When a human takes them by the hands, a light bulb comes to life. Indeed, a human input is required for our world to operate.
Humanoid robots were created by Andrei and Mikhail Kolokolov, Dmitry Chabanov, Andrei Plyasunov, Maksim Parfenov and Alexander Galeshnikov.
