ArtBots Gent 2011, the robot talent show
Robots are always with us, in one form or another. Humans have always been fascinated by robots and even after many years of evolution and high tech ingenuity, a veil of mystery still surrounds them. Within the context of contemporary art we can try to understand the real impact of robots on our society better.
Artbots is an international art exhibition for robotic art and art-making robots established by Douglas Irving Repetto. The first show took place in 2002 in Brooklyn, and has since travelled around the world. For every edition an open call for applications is published to invite designers from all over the world to present their work. This year the show is organised by timelab Gent, in cooperation with ArtBots US,Ugent and Foam. With Artbots 2011, timelab launches a new season of workshops centered around Robotics Art.
