Some robot/robert sketches from Japan, mostly at the Tokyo Museum of Emerging Science. First some animatronic manikin heads that nod and change expression empathetically when you speak into a microphone. They’re looking down on Asimo, the museum’s star attraction, named after Isaac Asimov, which walks in a most unsettling and hypnotic way… Then there’s a ‘hepatic touch’ robotic hand looming over some earlier drawings of people resting on the grass outside. And finally a 5 minute sketch (“Ed, the coach is about to go…”) of a MASSIVE Transformer robot outside a shopping centre. That’s a small child stood by its right foot.
