Robot Art

On Saturday, a new exhibit is opening at MASS MoCA in North Adams, Massachusetts. The exhibit has the intriguing title, "Geometric Death Frequency-141" and is the creation of sculptor, Federico Diaz. Or is it...?

This, taken from the MASS MoCA description,
Created from 420,000 black spheres precisely milled and assembled by robotic machines...
So, who created the art? The vision is the sculptor's, the execution is the machines'. I'll leave it to you to decide who is the artist!

For an entertaining look at robots, pick up Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey [DVD TWO], WALL-E [J DVD WAL], or the tongue-in-cheek guide, How to Survive a Robot Uprising: Tips on Defending Yourself Against the Coming Rebellion by Daniel H. Wilson [817.6 WIL, also AB/CD 817.6 WIL].
