AATB is the collaborative practise of Andrea Anner (b. 1985, CH) and Thibault Brevet (b.1988, FR), both graduates from ECAL/ Ecole cantonale d’art de Lausanne. Having previously worked on interactive objects and installations, they encountered an industrial robotic arm few years ago. This crystallised an ongoing research around human/machine interactions and led them to investigate the potential of robotics and industrial automation to exist outside the realm of factory floors.
Their practise involves a tight connection and understanding of manufacturing processes, ranging from software programming, electronics to mechanical engineering and precision machining. The studio of AATB is currently based between Zurich and Marseille.
