Robotics competitions showcase technical and engineering-based skills. This museum exhibition adds art to the mix.
Moving! Robotics, Automata, and the Stories We Tell offers technologically and artistically accomplished New Jersey university, college, and high school students a professionally organized museum gallery experience.
The Morris Museum invites participants to think about the way their designs can inspire the next generation to find creative and artistic applications for robotic design. The exhibition will be shown in Hedley Gallery, adjacent to our Smithsonian Spark!Lab, a hands-on dynamic learning space that inspires our youngest visitors to create, collaborate, and innovate.
The exhibition will also draw connections between contemporary robotics STE(A)M design and nineteenth-century automata from the museum’s historic Murtogh D. Guinness Collection.
Our jurors and curatorial team will select a number of images, videos, and robotics entries for display at the Morris Museum from April 14 through August 20, 2023. This curated exhibition will address the following theme: What stories do we tell when we make objects that move, and what do our animated figures reveal about us?
