Yo Robot

Posted by

Back in the Walsall Art Gallery Bob and Roberta Smith have been artist in residence here for the last two years and have been trawling through the collection of work by that rather underrated sculptor Jacob Epstein. His best known piece is probably 'The Rock Drill' a robotic hybrid of man and machine. This is Bob and Roberta's take on the theme:)

Didn't Blue Peter make a similar one with corn flake boxes and sticky backed plastic? :-)

@Curly: Quite possibly. It's a great tradition :)

I thought it was a bit odd how you referred to Bob and Roberta being an "artist" - not plural. Regardless, that's one helluva colorful robot! :-)

As long as this is the closest we get to Minority Report I'm okay with it. :)
