We teamed up with our friends at Mozilla and challenged our community of artists to create artwork around the themes of people and robots and technology making our lives better.
Thank you so much to all the artists who shared their weird and witty automaton designs. We’ve seen everything from lipstick-applying gynoids, to agile breakdancing Paul Stanley androids, to poker playing, donut guzzling bots. We also spotted a lot of robots with very impressive cod pieces. But we think we’ll just leave it at that… We were deluged with hundreds of outstanding submissions, but these were the designs that tripped our circuits and blew our fuses. Congratulations to our 1st place winner Hammo who takes home a cool $1000 with his design Playtime. Respect to our second place runner-up Tomek Karelus and his Autumn to Come artwork – who is now the proud owner of a Roomba, and also to our other runner-up Robert Podgórski and his pixelated Firefoxzilla Protecting the City.
As you all know, this contest would not have been possible without those good people over at Mozilla Firefox. If you, like Mozilla, sincerely believe in the power of technology, browsers (and robots) to enrich people’s lives, then you should probably check out their newly lauched Creative Collective and help them build a better internet via the power of your art.
