Experimenta Speak To Me’s artistic showcase is next level. It’s got robots and shit.

It features internationally renowned artists such as Hiroshi Ishiguro, a robotics expert who will present his latest emphatic robot; French art collective Scenocosme with their interactive sensory light and sound work, and Taiwanese artist Shih Chieh Huang with an organic living environment and sculpture featuring vivid, phosphorescent lighting systems. Sydney-based artist Wade Marynowsky’s spooky wardrobe android – The Acconci Robot – will stalk viewers as they turn around, while Melbourne artist Eugenia Lim explores the Japanese phenomenon of ‘hikikomori’ or ‘shut-in syndrome’ in her video performance installation Nest.

Hopefully, nothing will happen that will cause them to become sentient and decide that the human virus needs to be eradicated anytime soon, I have to get my hair done tomorrow.
