About Ulrich Museum of Art
In 1920, the term robot was coined from a Czech word robota, which meant tedious labor. Since then, the image and the idea of a robot have evolved remarkably from an awkward, mechanical creature to a sophisticated android with artifi cial intelligence and the potential for human-like consciousness. This exhibition is a selection of robot imagery in fine art during the past 15 years. As robotic technology catches up with the wild imagination of science fiction novels, movies, and animation, dreams and fears anticipated in these stories may also become reality. Artists included in the exhibition have responded to the technological innovation with optimism, pessimism, and humor, presenting work that ultimately explores the pros and cons we feel about robots.
