An early drawing by Panamarenko, dated 15 January 1970, shows his first developed project for a robot, to which he gave the title Aluminaut. The robot has a spherical body with a single lens for an eye. Only in 2004 did Panamarenko decide to turn the design into a working robot. He took the machine with him that summer to the North Pole, where he shot a series of videos with Arlikoop, set in the expanse of snow and ice.
