A Terrifying Robot Will Haunt Your Dreams

Array
Gear  |  Other


The thing dancing in this video is not a person. It's a humanoid installation piece, featuring facial recognition technology that allows it to focus on and follow you with its gaze. Watch the video, it is freaky! This scary unnamed doll is the work of artist Jordan Wolfson, who created the figure in collaboration with creature effects studio Spectral Motion. On display March 6 – April 19 at David Zwirner Art Gallery in NYC.
"I don't want to tell you this work is about women," said artist Jordan Wolfson over the phone, "because I don't think that's true." Wolfson, a 33-year-old artist who works in video, performance, and sculpture, was on a lunch break at a special effects studio in Los Angeles where he was developing his latest work, an animatronic sculptural woman that will be on display at David Zwirner gallery, engaging with visitors one-on-one beginning March 6. Despite his statement, the doll is the result of an attempt, "in a way," to explore the gaze, a concept with psychoanalytical roots that is most associated with the feminist notion of gender power imbalance that occurs in film, renaissance painting, and other media when viewers are asked to identify with the male perspective, and hence the objectification of women. What happens when the gaze is held by the sexual object?

M37 Howitzer Tank

Array
Gear  |  Other
Now you can order an American-made 1945 M37 tank with a 105mm Howitzer mortar cannon from a auction(July 12, 2014).
"The vehicle being offered, M37 105mm HMC, serial number 115, was built in October 1945 by American Car and Foundry. It was used as a training vehicle at Fort Knox until the mid-1950's after which time it was sent to Sioux City, IA for display. It was sold for scrap in 1989 in very poor condition. A complete and thorough restoration of the M37 took place at the MVTF during 1994-95 with many parts being rebuilt or replaced. This M37 is beyond a doubt the best one in existence! Included with it are a full load 105mm howitzer round packing tubes. It was last driven in January 2014. "
