ISEA 2011: UNCONTAINABLE: Signs of Life: Robot Incubator

UNCONTAINABLE: Signs of Life: Robot Incubator is part of the Official Parallel Program of the 12th Istanbul Biennial.

Unlike humans, robots aren’t born biologically. They are designed, built, programmed and incubated by their human parents in a variety of different birthing environments including robotics laboratories, artists’ studios and hobbyists’ back sheds. In the UNCONTAINABLE: Signs of Life: Robot Incubator exhibition there are robots that look like machines but display human-like psychological behaviours, a humanoid robot that looks like a sculpture come to life, a doll-like robotic automaton performer and interactive modular robots that display hybrid machinic/biomorphic characteristics.
