Mike of Slobots fame recently had a show opening tonight in Wilmington, NC at the Local Gallery at Fast Frame of Wilmington. The show opens this past Friday and runs for a month. There are about a dozen slobots in the show, including the (pictured) brand new Philosophers. They are 100% slobot, found objects, etc and each stands about 20” tall. They form a Triptych, and there story goes like this:
Three Philosophers standing in
a room, waxing philosophical on ethics, aesthetics, and various other thought
provoking topics. These three philosophers love to discuss the ins and
outs of the most complex and innane subjects equally. While lacking vocal
instruments, they still manage to share their ideas both grand and verbose, by
communicating telepathically with each other and everyone else as well.
If you find yourself suddenly full of more thoughts than you can keep track of,
there is probably a slobot Philosopher in the room.
