Since its @lunaparkmelb gig in June, 'Scenic' has been wending its way up to Brisbane to be part of 'Machination', @cake_industries' new exhibition opening at #QUTArtMuseum on 20 August. It's a long walk!
Known as 'Cake Industries', Victorian regional artist duo Jesse Stevens and Dean Petersen create performative mechatronic sculptures. 'Machination' features animated public works which recently appeared inside the grounds of Luna Park Melbourne theme park and form part of Jesse and Dean's 'Voyages' series, as well as other performative and interactive out of time works.
Come and meet these surreal robotic sculptures in August!
The " F U T U R E " is here, a self driving delivery bot 📦 In South London!!!! I'm not sure this thing will last... It has a lockable lid and cameras but will that really stop the criminal fraternity, I'm not sure, I lifted it up at the front, not too heavy, but this one had a minder so I guess we'll find out what the future hold when this little thing is out and about on it's own. Oh and what stopping people from using them to deliver drugs? #therobotsarecoming#RobotWars#K9#BuckRodgers#biddiebiddie#automan#starship#Future
I call this the #bathroomselfie . After yesterday, I resolved my own problems. Yes, I have 2 #c2m17 passes. One real one and one media pass. .
Soooooo... long story ahead.... if something will break, it will happen to me. Every year c2 breaks for me.
Soooo... media photographers and videographers get 5 mins then escorted out. As for the Others, there's 15-20 seats inside the big top and it's first come first serve.
Yesterday, I show up early, I follow the rules but I have a restricted pass bc I take pictures. Ok. So I wait for an escort. No one seems to know what's going on and won't let me in. I'm at the media entrance of the big top like a good girl and I get refused entry repeatedly even with an escort. After all this running around, I finally get escorted in. After 5 mins, the ticket scanner aka #humanformofai (meaning if you programmed an ai to be human and you needed an IRL human to compare to confirm the study, this guy was it) comes to get me and kicks me out. Nothing has started yet. NO ONE has even hit the stage. #SIGH in front of everyone including the nice man who works at Intel that I chatted with, I get drama' d out of the big top. After more kerfuffle and chaos, thankfully a person responsible for press personally escorts me back to the SAME PLACE but first by explaining to #humanformofai who grudgingly creates an exception rule in his algorithms to this computation glitch in the system. When I leave the big top again, at least 3 people wished me luck when I got escorted back out. Keep in mind it was #humanformofai who started this mess and refused me entry repeatedly #therobotsarecoming#dontbethatguy Everyone else at c2 has been great helping me out. .
Sooooo... today I have 2 passes. Gratefully, @inoviacapital @acceleratemtl @a.nivard took pity on me and gave me a pass so I can stay in the big top like an adult.
I'm now walking around with 2 passes and actively being 2 people. .
