Last friday I went to the opening of arts and technology festival; Amber09. It was an amusing way to spend the friday night. Check out the interactive installations and performances.

I believe what everybody looked forward to see was the mating process of the sexed robots (a performance staged by Paul Granjon).

Sexed Robots
“The Sexed Robots are autonomous wheeled robots fitted with nylon genital organs, respectively male and female. The robots are programmed to explore their environment occasionally entering an “in heat” mode, where they will try and locate a partner in the same state. If a partner is located, the robots will attempt to mate.”

Lately I’ve been mingling with lots and lots of canson paper; transforming rectangular boxes into “sculptural” items or designing a package for a traditional tea glass with its saucer and spoon. So I’ve had it with paper and I’m glad we moved on to a different material; wood.

Nevertheless I want to share something I came across when mingling with paper. Ladies and gentlemen, I introduce you paper sculptures of Bert Simons.
