About the event
Fri, 03/23/2007 - 20:00
Speaker: 
Dan Paluska

dan paluska spent several months between august 2006 and march 2007
working with Amorphic Robot Works(Chico MacMurtrie) on the Totemobile, an 11,000 pound, 50 foot tall, $1,000,000+ robotic sculpture. He has worked on the project with 15+ people in brooklyn and then 6-8 in france. He'd like to talk about the sculpture, the idea of big money corporate sponsored art and all the pros and cons of art projects where the lead artist becomes a director rather than an implementer.

dan has a background in mechanical engineering and robotics. he's
built numerous robots for research into human locomotion, prosthetics, rehabilitation, and human augmentation. he is a long time co-curator of collision events with jackbackrack. he currently working as a freelance engineer/consultant and trying to plan how to make more time for sculpture and art. you can see some of his previous work at plainfront.com
