Sylvie Bermann: FT House & Home



Simone Giertz / Shitty Robots

Simone Giertz

For a piece about Simone Giertz by Sam Rowe in Wired Magazine I decided to take Simone’s portrait not by travelling to Stockholm, where she lives, but by sending a camera (thanks Sony), attaching it to her homemade robot arm and controlling it over the Internet from my desk in London. I gave directions via FaceTime – hence the headphones – and pressed the shutter using Sony’s Remote Camera Control app.
