ARACHNOPHOB.A.I.
ā€
I have a severe fear of spiders. And Iā€™m also aware of how irrational this fear is, especially in the Netherlands where the big eight-legged freaks are rare and poisonous spiders do not exist. With this project I wanted to investigate my phobia, teach the specifics of it to artificial intelligence and have it design a confrontation so I can just get over it. For the therapy I modelled and 3D printed the spider.
Oh, and I also got to hold a tarantula.
