The Follower robot on Granville Island

The Follower was a physical entity that wandered the public space in front of Emily Carr University during the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics. This public space was a main corridor of foot traffic during the Olympics and car traffic during the rest of the regular year on Granville Island.

The Follower on Granville Island

The Follower was designed as a reflection on the fading history of Granville Island. The physical design of the moving entity echoed the physicality of old creosote soaked railroad ties; its slow, wandering, walking pace searching for a fading history.

Makiko and The Follower

The Follower was a self driving robot that bridged the modern day function of Granville Island as a public space and its industrial history.
