Building Bridges Art Exchange is pleased to present RobotiX--an exhibition highlighting the synergies between art, technology, and robots--by Argentinean artist, Cristian Castro. Curated by Carlos Ortega, the works on display span over a decade of artistic production. Castro’s work is a feat of engineering and creativity. He intentionally repurposes discarded vintage household appliances and old mechanical tools and incorporates them into his robotic works of art. Embedded in the ergonomic curvature of the robot's metal parts, Castro points to the neglected virtues of technology: simplistic beauty, object provenance, and the process of invention.

Artist ( Description ): 

Cristian Castro is a self-taught industrial designer and contemporary artist born in Buenos Aires, Argentina. From a young age, he was fascinated by the function of all things, driving him to discover, dissect, and dismantle any manner of toys and machines he could get his hands on, ultimately fusing them together as artistic creations junkyard parts reimagined with the vision of a NASA engineer. His work has been exhibited internationally and nationally, including MOLAA Museum of Latin American Art, Salt Fine Art Gallery, and Building Bridges Art Exchange on public art projects among others.
