The NEW R5 Travel Agency
Roving Roof Revision Request Robot
Imagine your Paradise…. Your Dream is your Reality
A small gallery/office space equipped with a desk and chairs, signage, computing, imaging and printing equipment set up to establish the flavor of a full service travel agency for changing the world, from above. Agents will be available to assist customers while busy working on computers, telephones and printers.
When the agency office is open one of the agents: bigwitz.bot, hoch.bot or jesha.bot will be available either in person or via the internet from the roof of the Mattress Factory with either a clipboard and/or a laptop to entertain the customer/viewer’s Revision Requests. Viewers will be asked to go and/or be escorted to a location via Google Earth whereupon they can request to revise a rooftop by imaging it from a ‘menu’ of sustainable components including:
• Living roof strategies; intensive, extensive or modular green roof systems planted with sedums, perennials, prairie grasses, food crops and kitchen herb gardens, fruit tree orchards and/or a forest ecosystem.
• Renewable resource strategies: photo voltaic systems; wind turbines; water wheels, water retention tanks and irrigation systems.
• Any other imaginative addition to a rooftop plane– that a customer may desire.
The plan is to engage viewers in a conversation not only about the possibilities of sustainable systems but also the new perspective and ability we currently have to view the world from above….and perhaps change it…..and therefore improve it for the birds and all the rest of the critters; two leggeds, four leggeds and more.
