Jan. 09, 2018
NEW YORK (AP) — An artist whose work includes a flame spewing robot the size of an elephant and a pitching machine powered by a car engine has opened his first commercial art show in New York City.
Mark Pauline, who works under the name Survival Research Laboratories, has opened a new exhibition in the Chelsea neighborhood-based Marlborough Contemporary, which is also his first selling show. The New York Times reports Pauline's work focuses on heavy machinery and large robots created from castoff factory materials.
One of the works on display, "Pitching Machine" hurls wooden planks at up to 200 miles an hour. Another, "Track Robot," is controlled via a 3-D Oculus Rift headset.
The gallery declined to share information about pricing.
