Robots Suffer for Art's Sake

Posted 24 Dec 2004 at 23:51 UTC by steve Share This

A new Wired article discusses the problem Hollywood seems to have with robots and technology in general. They seem to make a large number of movies in which technology in general and robots in particular are evil. Artist Fernando Orellana, among others, thinks Hollywood is wrong. Orellana has created a kinetic art piece called Unending Enclosure for the Art & Artificial Life International Competition that offers an alternate view of three robots that are frightened of humans.

Robots frightened of humans may be mentally ill and may need a robot psychiatrist.

The title of the work is "Unending Closure", not "enclosure". Of course, for me, both titles work equally well.
