SonarMàtica Barcelona, (Back To) The Robots
Sónar 2010 | 03.06.2010

The Sonar 2010 Barcelona exhibition displays interesting artistic work produced using and based around the world of robotics.

Robotic dogs, chairs that put themselves up and machines for drawing self-portraits,... are some of the curious works that will be on display at SonarMàtica 2010 Barcelona.

Moving into the twenty-first century, the socialisation of digital tools and the spread of creative cooperativism has made new generations of artists once again turn their attention towards robotics. The proliferation of art workshops, university departments and specialised festivals are strong evidence of today's new phenomenon of the democratisation of robotics.

A chair that folds itself up and puts itself again, surveillance robots, robots that play the violin and guide users drawing a self-portrait, robotic pet... All this and much more are featured in this year's SonarMàtica, in which the festival is again collaborating with Universitat Pompeu Fabra, the Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya and the production centre Hangar.
