The Hybrid Society (Cake Industries)
Roaming throughout Robotronica, strange human/machine hybrids will walk amongst us. A physical manifestation of the link between humans and their devices, influencers and consumers, their obsession with their devices and themselves knows no bounds.
Always connected, yet somewhat separated from the world around them, these performing robotic sculptures use dark humour and absurdity to reflect and highlight the growing obsession with online personas and the technology that draws our attention from dawn to dusk.
Created by regional Victorian-based artists Cake Industries (Jesse Stevens & Dean Petersen), these pieces continue their work in remixing and animating everyday objects into surreal situations and micro-theatrics.
An Experimenta/Robotronica co-commission. This project has been assisted by the Australian Government through the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body.
