girltron 2.0

interactive for website girltron.com
site specific prints
limited edition colouring in book (sold out)

For girltron 2.0 I produced an online interactive enabling people to digitally customise and create their own robot doll characters, which can then be printed out and hand coloured in. It was an experiment in using modern digital tools whilst observing traditional methods of interaction.

Prints of characters from girltron 2.0 were mounted on the wall and coloured in by visitors to the exhibition, enabling site specific work at each gallery location. See some examples here.
