The Board and Staff of EMP|SFM invite you to the exhibition preview of Robots: A Designer's Collection of Miniature Mechanical Marvels. Light refreshments and no-host bar will be provided.
Robots: A Designer's Collection of Miniature Mechanical Marvels celebrates our long fascination with humankinds' technological version of itself. This exhibition draws from a one-of-a-kind assemblage of toy robots, which noted designer Tom Geismar has been collecting for decades. Inspired by antique tin and wooden toys, samurai warriors and mid-20th century Japanese film characters, these intricately detailed and beautifully designed miniatures are set against EMP|SFM's backdrop of life-sized robots, androids and cyborgs from the world of science-fiction film and television.
The exhibition runs May 16 to October 26, 2008, in the Pulsar Lounge Gallery at EMP|SFM.
