- the POUNDBURY ROBOT SOCIETY is a parafactual membership society engaged in participatory placemaking for the techno-historicist village conurbation of Poundbury in Dorsetshire.

Built in the last decade, the village of Poundbury looks hundreds of years old. It is a remarkable place offering many creative possibilities for imaginations displaced across the realms of time and technology

From its greco-roman substation (featured on the Poundbury Robot Societ logo), to its Tuscan granary, Georgian town houses and Victorian car parks, it is a site that present the pinnacle of techno-futurist control of destiny. Its energetic triumphanlism reminds members of the Poundbury Robot Society of the physics equation that measures work (and 'robot' is a word meaning worker).

 

Power is distance times time.

 

Robots downsize too. And for this reason Poundbury offers many homecomings. And so, it is the core mission of the Poundbury Robot Society to draw on the accumulated techno-futurist perspectives of industrial worker units to creatively address the significance of temporal and spatial displacement in imaginative identity and collective mythologys.
