robot art

my submission
I'm still working on the wheels
on the arms, before I send it in.

The Museum Of Brazilian Culture had a call
for 500 people to receive and submit an
altering of a cardboard robot, donated
by a company called Troy Art.

You can see what's come in so far:


The exhibition starts Jan 11, 2011.

William Kentridge interviews himself.

Great self-interview, terrific robot art!!! It's a thriving sub-genre with many considering it their specialty!

Coffee Messiah said...

sam: Thanks for taking a look. Of course, by making this first one, I had different ideas for others if I had them.

Gwyneth Leech said...

William Kentridge always delivers.
Bonus: cafetiere drawing, cafetiere on the table AND he paints with something from the coffee cup. Old coffee? Ink?
Love this video! Thanks for posting.

I wrote about his show at MOMA some months ago and had fun spotting the coffee pots.
Here is a link to that post:
