Robots: In Our Image
['Temporary office' located at 21 Grand 416 25th St.]
a presentation by Eliot K Daughtry, Executive Director
a performance by killer banshee

Most of the world's robots are industrial, but most of the ones we imagine look like humans. Why do we think about one and use another? How can a robot be a human and also be an artificial intelligence? Why are we comfortable with some robots, but find others creepy? Why are more robots male than female? This presentation will discuss major areas of the Robot Taxonomy Project, an ongoing effort to classify all types of robots and why humans create them.

Part of a solo art exhibition of new work at 21 Grand
Art installation is open thru Dec 6.

The temporary office will be located at 21 Grand, an interdisciplinary art space located in Oakland California.

June/July mini Tour was a great success!

killer banshee creates challenging audiovisual art, with a focus on live, projected video works. Intersecting cultural politics, technology and art, they combine material from personal and public archives, forging meanings from the examination of gesture, time, and place. killer banshee frequently collaborates with other artists. This tour attempts to offset the cost of 7 visits in 2 years for extensive medical care at The Chiari Institute, NY.

We'll be performing several current works including Mobility, Politics of Fear & Emergency Gender System.
