Last Outpost in Uncanny Valley

Last Update on April 14, 2008

This is the working title for a new installation that I will present at
California College of the Arts as my Master Thesis Exhibition.

All the work is still in prototype stage, but now I at least have a few photos
to share with those who are interested in what it is that I've been doing
for the last few months.

I've reformatted this page to just scroll down instead of the two across.

Check out the LART competition pages too! It is part of the same project. [EKD]

The first version of the Uncanny Valley Authority website is now online, with more information about the work previewed here.

My written thesis project, Robots: a Practical Taxonomy can be previewed here.

Translations of the Binary Panel works that comprise the exterior of the Uncanny Valley Authority Outposts are available here.

This will become two cabinets of LARTs, maybe more depending on how many LART submissions are received.
