Including work by 40 artists, ”Artists and Robots” opens a door to an immersive and digital world—an expanded experience that disrupts our ideas of space and time.
In a continually changing society, the artists study new advancements, including artificial intelligence, and its potential to revolutionize human life, while offering a word of warning about the potential pitfalls of AI.
Following in the footsteps of pioneers Nicolas Schoffer, Jean Tinguely, and Nam June Paik, creators in every discipline are now working in the fields of digital technology, using tools that are making robots progressively autonomous and humanistic, even.
These works, by artists like Manfred Mohr, Vera Molnar, Iannis Xenakis, Demian Conrad, and Raquel Kogan, investigate the questions: What can a robot do that an artist cannot ? If a robot has an artificial intelligence, does it have an imagination ?
