ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show

The second annual ArtBots show, which opened July 12 at
Manhattan?s Eyebeam gallery, brings the state of the art to a new
high. The exhibit showcases 23 art-making robots, from the
Automated Architecture Robot?which sculpts model buildings out of a
block of ice with a water hose, then projects windows and doors
onto it with a slide projector?to the 4-piece robotic band LEMUR
(League of Electronic Musical Urban Robots)?which includes the
self-playing GuitarBot and a four-armed blue drummer called
ShivaBot. It?s too late to catch the opening talent show, which
took place July 12 and 13, but the web site contains artist
statements and bios for each of the 23 participating artists and
groups. And selected entries are on display through this
week.
