Art Bots

I went to Artbots 2004: The Robot Talent Show today. It was pretty neat.
It's an ArtBots invasion in Harlem! The Third Annual ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show will take place on September 17, 18, & 19 from noon to 6:00pm at The Mink Building on 126th Street & Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem. Featuring the work of 20 artists and groups from seven countries, the show celebrates the strange and wonderful collision of shifty artists, disgraced engineers, high/low/no tech hackers, rogue scientists, beauty school dropouts, backyard pyros, and industrial espionage that has come to define the emerging field of robotic art. Participants include robots that sketch, carve, float, wiggle, hum, ring, grow, wander, and sing, as well a number of works the form and function of which are not yet well understood.
It is a free event, but buying a t-shirt to help fund it isn't a bad idea. My favorite was Sisyphus by Bruce Shapiro. I also really enjoyed Three Blind Mice by ART - but there several others that I enjoyed. You should check it out next year...
