Book Description

The first compendium on robotic art of its kind; this ebook; Robots and Art: Exploring an Unlikely Symbiosis (PDF) explores the integration of robots into human society and our attitudes; fears; and hopes in a world shared with autonomous machines. It raises questions about the risks; benefits; and ethics of the transformative changes to society that are the consequence of robots taking on new roles alongside human beings. It takes the reader on a journey into the world of the beautiful; the uncanny; the strange; and the daring – and into the minds and works of some of the world’s most prolific creators of robotic art.

Offering an in-depth look at robotic art from the viewpoints of engineers; artists; and scientists; it presents outstanding works of contemporary robotic art and brings together for the first time some of the most influential artists in this area in the last three decades. Starting from a historical review; this transdisciplinary work explores the nexus between robotic research and the arts and examines the diversity of robotic art; the encounter with robotic otherness; machine embodiment and human-robot interaction. Stories of pitfalls; difficulties; and successes are recalled; characterizing the multifaceted collaborations across the diverse disciplines required to create robotic art.

Although the ebook is primarily targeted towards researchers; artists; and students in computer science; robotics; and the arts; its accessible style appeals to anyone intrigued by robots and the arts.
