Todd Blair

On Saturday night, pioneering machine art group Survival Research Laboratories performed at the Robodock Arts & Technology Festival in Amsterdam. As the crew was striking the set after the show, longtime SRL participant Todd Blair was knocked to the ground and suffered a catastrophic head injury. He underwent emergency brain surgery and is currently in an induced coma. The physicians hope to bring him out of the coma in the next day or so. The extent of his injuries will not be known until he wakes up, but Todd’s family and friends at his bedside remain optimistic.
