Enter from the back of the gallery – 601 Washington Street @ Leroy StRobots Building Robots meditates on the “lights out” factory, so-named for the lack of need for regular, human supervision. The book takes form as a travelogue of improvised performances, which Tyler Coburn conducted at a science park in Southern Taiwan; rumor has it that a robotics company is presently building one such facility on site. During a long walk through the park’s grounds, the artist considers literary and philosophical speculations on labor, machinic intelligence and the “automatic factory”: an enduring fiction gradually creeping into reality.
