Andrea Anner, Thibault Brevet

AATB is the collaborative practise of Andrea Anner and Thibault Brevet, both graduates from ECAL.

Having previously worked on interactive objects and installations, they encountered an industrial robotic arm five years ago. This crystallized ongoing research around human/machine interactions and led them to investigate the potential of robotics and industrial automation 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. Reflecting on the dissemination and assimilation of robotics into mundane activities, their work critically explores novel situations arising from these shifts. Since 2020, the studio operates a Motion Control service for the film industry: Superposition. The studio is based between Zurich and Marseille.
