ARTofficial Intelligence: The 6th Annual Robot Exchange
by DANIEL VEINTIMILLA
The robots have decided they admired our spirit and decided to spare us for another year or so. In the meantime, here’s a visual recap of some of the fun work and artists who participated in the 6th Annual Robot Exchange. My apologies to the artists I missed and thank you for participating. It was a truly joyous night.
First time participating artist PT Collins impressive drunk robot sculpture, who also was awarded best in show for sculpture or “3d” in the show.
Pedro Hernandez stole best in show for visual art or “2d” with this robotic “Tesla.” Photo Courtesy of Pedro Hernandez Facebook.
Lassyu got to play an amazing set, my apologies for missing the other acts. I got to catch up with bassist Adam Steadman who seem really excited about their work so far and for a good reason.
An interesting and very talented crowd at Bar@548.
On the left, visual artist Michael Conway‘s “Utterance of Dreams.” In the middle, Brandy Stark‘s angel sculpture captured my attention. I found out she’s a professor at SPC and a paranormal investigator. To the right, we can see part of Brook Lyn’s “Deep Thought” mixed media on canvas.
