Robert Twomey: The Serious Business of Children

Recommended, Don’t Miss

4Culture Gallery (map) Pioneer Square
Oct. 1-29 2015


One of Robert Twomey's first experiments in computer art was when he trained a chatbot to converse with him as if the bot were his grandmother, whose dementia was deepening at the time. He pursued a relationship with his computer as if the computer were a loved one. Twomey is always interested in the personal human connection to technology. In this current room-sized installation, The Serious Business of Children, he has built drawing, recording, and speaking machines that continue his hand translations of found children's drawings by mechanical means, and through words the children themselves wouldn't have known. What does a computer see in a child's drawing? JEN GRAVES
