See Yourself E(x)ist: Pratt Manhattan Gallery


Thanks to Andrew for sending us this great tip. Unfortunately we missed the opening but this show will be running through February 7! Andrew writes:

There’s an upcoming opening party for a fun exhibit at the
Pratt Manhattan Gallery featuring many robotic and arduino -fueled artworks!

Robotic artists in the exhibit include:

  • Michael Candy – (Robot Luna Moth)
  • Gijs Gieskes – (physical computing sound artist)
  • Schwartzman and Quitmeyer – (Robotic Dry Cleaners covered with glowing leaves from around the world)
  • Kathryn Fleming – (Futuristic robotic bear sculpture)

The whole show is also curated by Madeline Schwartzman who writes cool books
about the future of wearable fashion (and her new book See Yourself X, will
finally be out for release at the opening! )


See Yourself E(x)ist is an exhibition that looks at the future of humans and
nature–at our poetic and futile attempts at agency, and our absurd
productive efforts to control. The art includes robotics, prosthetics,
electronics, installation, video, sculpture and painting – and an
animatronic bear!

Here’s some more info from

See Yourself E(x)ist looks at how artists envision our human future in nature—our poetic attempts at agency, our technological advances, and our futile role in the intricate and complex web of all living things. We are, after all, always plummeting toward our own end. Control is just a filter. Nature does not speak human. Turbulence, decay, entropy and gravity do not recognize human attempts at adaptation, or human existence at all. See Yourself E(x)ist focuses on human ingenuity in the midst of such disturbing awareness. The art acknowledges the elegance of futility, the strangeness of attempts at

The exhibition includes robotics, prosthetics, electronics, installation, video, sculpture and painting, and features the work of: Nobumichi Asai, Alan Berliner, Michael Candy, Fantich & Young, Kathryn Fleming, Gijs Gieskes, Lee Griggs, Ann Hamilton, Dorry Hsu, John Jerard, Lanzavecchia + Wai, Lorenzo Oggiano, Jaime Pitarch, Andrew Quitmeyer, Madeline Schwartzman, and Allan Wexler.
