Amazing #animal #Robots that really exist #video [geekgirl]

The family of robot animals from the German developer of robotics Festo is growing. The company presents many new robots, for example: a swarm of ants that can interact with each other, as well as butterflies and dragonflies, which are characterized by all the ease and grace of these insects. When they were created, the company focused not only on their appearance, but also on behavioral characteristics.

The Willoughby Visual Arts Biennial is a contemporary art festival that brings temporary public art and happenings to the central public spaces of the Chatswood CBD in Sydney. Now in its second iteration, the 2017 Biennial (running from 6-24 September) is larger in both scope and size this year.

Programmed alongside several public art installations is an exciting solo exhibition by artist Wade Marynowsky, entitled Algorithmic Pareidolia. Marynowsky’s installation is a series of new experimental video and robotic artworks that explore how our understanding of reality is increasingly simulated and automated. After his 2014 retrospective at the National Gallery of Victoria, Wade Marynowsky: Nostalgia for Obsolete Futures, as well as numerous international projects, this solo exhibition at the Incinerator Art Space is a huge coup for Willoughby City Council, who manage the Biennial.

Algorithmic Pareidolia contains eight artworks that respond to the Biennial theme, ‘Kaleidoscope’. Five videos set in Sydney display a slow-moving and highly stylised aesthetic that references the paintings of Belgian artist, René Magritte. Utilising a surreal abstraction, the videos overlay multiple images to depict a Sydney of the future.
