Robotic Art Making Sculpture Comes to King Plaza
The Palo Alto Public Art Program in partnership with the Palo Alto Art Center and Palo Alto Art Center Foundation presents a new temporary art installation at King Plaza: The Artwork Forge by Pittsburgh artist Toby Atticus Fraley. It's a retro-style interactive robotic sculpture creating on-demand unique artworks for visitors in just a couple of minutes. Inspired by mid-century Popular Science magazines, Fraley’s whimsical and thought-provoking artwork brings play and applied science together while igniting timely discussions about the evolving relationship between humans and machines.
By inserting four quarters, a visitor can watch their artwork being “created” by the Artwork Forge, and eventually being deposited into a tray on one end of the sculpture for collection. The sculpture will remain on display through April 2018.
Don't miss the Artist Meet & Greet Event: On November 2, 3:30-4:30 p.m., come meet artist Toby Atticus Fraley who will give you a crash course on retro-style robotics and introduce you to his newly installed artwork.
