人と交流するのが苦手な理系女子「ジェニー」。ツイッターやフェイスブックで同世代の子達が盛んに交流する2011年、馴染めないジェニーだけは強い疎外感を感じていた。そんなジェニーは、彼女のバイオロジー研究ラボの教授の論文を見ながらカラスと会話の出来るロボット「カラスボット」を開発してしまう。こっそりラボでシミュレーションをしながら人間以外の異動物種との交流を試みるジェニーは...?
作品詳細は http://sputniko.com/blog/crowbotjenny...

Crowbot Jenny, inspired by Donna Haraway's philosophical memoir When Species Meet (2007), is a solitary girl who, despite her generation's tendency toward communication overload, has trouble relating to her peers. In fact, Crowbot Jenny prefers to talk with animals and uses the Crowbot, an instrument that replicates a range of crow calls, to commune with her army of birds. Sputniko! collaborated with crow specialists from University of Cambridge (UK), University of Utsunomiya (Japan) and University of Tokyo (Japan) who provided her with sample crow calls which she installed inside Crowbot. From that collaboration she learned that crows are capable of advanced social communication, and even of reading other animals' minds. Crowbot Jenny contemplates the potential of cross-species interaction, suggesting a scenario in which technology lets us, as the artist says, "re-realize the urban animals surrounding us.
