STEAMBOT is a collaborative exhibition, featuring artwork that combines both current and Industrial Age technologies. Through a juried process, five artists, programmers, and fabricators were selected to create an exhibition that collapses time between the cutting edge of today and the craftsmanship and ingenuity of the past. Steambot bridges the worlds of art, technology, industry and history, through the spirit of interdisciplinary exploration.
