Inflatable birds - Chico MacMurtrie

Amorphic Robot Works directed by the American artist Chico MacMurtie has built more than two-hundred of them in the past fifteen years. MacMurtrie discovered and is actually currently exploring the possibilities of lightweight synthetics, plastics, and injection moulded joints. The result is a series of extremely lightweight robots: Inflatable Bodies. They do not only refer to human and animal bones, but to muscles as well. MacMurtrie’s first series of sixteen robots bears the name Inflatable Birds. Inflatable bodies can be seen at the MU Art gallery in Eindhoven from May 5th through June 3rd 2007.
