Patricia Piccinini’s Automotive Sculptures
Australian artist Patricia Piccinini deals with artificial intelligence and the idea of artificial emotion with her genetic engine sculptures. The visual artist has created three different sculptures – ‘The Stags’, ‘Nest’ and ‘Thicker than Water’, each work attempting to bring technology into new light and raise the question: ‘what will become of out technological creations?’
The artist explains:
I’ve imagined these machines that haven’t been domesticated by humans.
All my work is concerned with the definition of how what we consider artificial and natural is changing – the role that technology plays in our contemporary imagination.
