Robot 30: Plantimal 2

We are excited to announce the National arts Program is launching a new website. Please be patient with us for the next few hours during this transition while user access has been disabled. Don't worry all your great artwork will still be available in the new site!

Some of the great new features of the site include:

  • Overall enhanced user experience
  • More intuitive registration forms
  • More intuitive artist profile and artwork management features

Once the new site is live existing users will need to reset their password for security reasons. Once the new site is live check your email for the password message and follow the instructions in that email. If you don’t see the message, check your spam folder. You can always reset your password from the login screen as well.

Robot 30: Plantimal 2

Works on Paper

This is one of the most visually direct drawings in the “Living Machine” series.  As with other works in this series, this drawing explores themes of mimetic evolution, Lamarckian evolution and self-construction.  A large organic spheroid creature (a “Plantimal”) mimics the form of a smaller more machine-like creature which it is carrying.  The background is taken largely from a view of low mountains north of Interstate 8 near the Arizona-California border.
