- A large-scale art installation involving
autonomous robotic sculptures, moving about a landscape environment,
attempting to carry out each creature’s goals. The story line is
futuristic, while based on Greek mythology. In a far future where
humankind has left the dying planet to be staffed only by robotic
biomorphic creatures, the large (18 foot high) Ladon attempts to protect
huge egg/pods while predator creatures seek to devour them. Based on
the Greek mythological creature, Ladon, who is brought in by Zeus to
guard the golden apples growing in the garden of the Hesperides sisters,
will be joined by a cast of predator and protector creatures; our
version will be a cross from Rudd’s imagination, Jurassic Park and Star
Wars – all rolled into one. This work took four years to build,
establishing the first (university level) robotic arts program in the
nation; it was built within the physics’ department of the Massachusetts
College of Liberal Arts (Dr. William Seeley, Chair), North Adams, MA.
