Transition in the meaning of the robot symbol
The concept of media as contained in media art continually changes in meaning as a symbol with time. The meaning of media acquired from robots, for example, emphasizes the phenomenon of media as a pre-contemporary term by drawing on the analogy of cutting-edge, new technology and future outlook seen from the viewpoint of the past and the approaching appearance of robots by humans. Meanwhile, robotics, which was created by the sacred environment that we live in, will continue to spread in use via revolutionary technologies created by man as environmental robots and as social agents that mold our society. Even if have applied the evaluation of robotics to the evaluations of social function derived from functional and structural beauty in the past, I sense that this will be connected to art in the future. While the former kinetic art works are expanded on as information technologies, I personally learned through this screening that works that leave one feeling the sense of art in a completed exterior or a unexpected mixture do indeed deserve such recognition.
