These two videos of robotic projects by artist Michael Kontopoulos show examples of his work that feature machines with obvious flaws. “Machine that Tries to Draw Circles” is a machine that exhibits a chaotic attempt at drawing a circle by failing miserably. The other video of “Machines that Almost Fall Over” shows hammers programmed to pound on the object supporting them in order to tip it over. Interesting take on a-life in kinetic objects with low self-esteem.
