(We) The particiapants of Artbots are "real artists." As everything on this planet changes, so too must art evolve to reflect current cultural situations. Robotics in art a new concept...... much like Duchamps' ready made works at the turn of the last century, many did not understand nor call it art until, they understood the language of the (then) current movement and evolution of art.
~best to all,
PS. while I was intiitally accepted to this juried only exhibit, I had to back out a few weeks ago because of major health issues. I wish Artbots a very successful show. "SALIX" and I will be there is spirit!
