Culturally Driven Perceptions of Robotic & Cybernetic Machines involves having utopian ideals of sexually available white and clean robots on the one hand , and the dystopian perception of powerful self-aware “Terminator” robots that have decided to wipe out humanity “in a war against machines”  on the other hand. Both of these diametrically opposed binaries don’t work because they are not rooted in the practical reality of human machine co-operation. It is important to note that ‘Art-Bot’ is not transfixed on making any sort of specific cultural or social commentary on the implication of human machine interaction. I do not assume to know the long term implications of a human machine shared material interaction and intelligence. Therefore, I focus on the practicality of sculpting as one might see in contemporary prosthetics research. However, it should be noted that I develop perceptual prosthetics intended for creative electronic and robotic art research (primarily for able bodied artists) and not necessarily for day to day applications.
