Dorkbot CBR : Exhibition
Fri 7th – Sat 15th
Nov @ CCAS Manuka

While electricity might be the common denominator for Dorkbot’s global pursuits it doesn’t account for the many technologies used by its members or the diversity of ideas that flourish under its lo-to-hi tech canopy.

Prepare to be astonished by ‘speaking’ collars, artworks that produce and destroy themselves, recycled organisms, teenage memories ignited by science, interactive deception, drawing without beginning or end and The Bible … as you have never seen it.

There is a genuine and passionate interest amongst Dorkbot members, in the ways their colleagues explore and employ a diversity of media. As the work of each artist unfolds it is clear that no technology is too old to explore or too new to confront. No idea too bizarre to consider or too strange to discuss.
They are not afraid to experiment !

Hybrid media and cocktails of ideas lay the foundations for art
