animate Voltron's Corpse at Artisphere

A fantastic collection of robotic figures are now inhabiting Artisphere's Works-In-Progress Gallery.  Each figure consists of three canvases: legs, mid-section, and head.  Each week the individual canvases are re-arranged across the collection to form new figures.  The exhibit, called Voltron's Corpse, shows creative possibilities for re-organization built upon underlying standardization.  The interchangeable parts of mass-manufacturing here beat with the dynamic social organizations of the Internet.  Consider the future of society with this exhibit at Artisphere.

Whatever the future will be, it's a good excuse for a party.  Votron's Corpse highlights the "Year of the Robot" theme for the mega-party Countdown to Yuri's Night.  It was previewed with a spectacular robot float at this year's Mardi Gras parade.  This other-worldly party will be humming at Artisphere on Saturday, April 13.  Get your tickets here.
