Robot Talent

A Call for Works:

The third annual ArtBots: The Robot Talent Show, an international art exhibition for robotic art and art-making robots, will take place in New York City in early fall 2004. Creators of talented robots are invited to submit their work for possible inclusion in the show. Proposals and works-in-progress are welcome, provided a detailed production timeline and samples of previous work are included in the application. The deadline for entries is May 1st, 2004.

No firm rules exist on the types of work that can participate; if you think it’s a robot and you think it’s art, we encourage you to submit.

    Hopefully we won’t see any DARPA-funded robot entries that operate in the style of Niki de Saint Phalle. Particularly not giant ones.

    I’d love to learn more about the software+hardware systems out there that create drawings / paintings. Anyone know of a list of links on this topic?

    Here’s a link back to an exchange we had last year with Harold Cohen, whose AI system AARON, developed over decades, creates paintings on-screen, some of which get drawn on paper or painted onto canvas. I’m not sure about the exact mechanism for how they get onto paper / canvas — here’s a photo of a plotter

    For this art festival, I wonder if “printing” a picture qualifies as robot art…

    But these days term “robot” seems to extend to software-only bots too…
