Glowing, tentacled robotic horrors invade Santa Monica


Visitors attending Santa Monica's GLOW festival found a stunning surprise in artist Shih Chieh Huang's Recycled Robots, simple sculptures made from odds and ends including plastic bags and bottles, computer fans, portable DVD players hooked up to screens, and assorted PC components. The sculptures were stuffed full of multicolored lights, black lights and glowing UV liquids that gave them an eerie hue as they danced about. Did Huang really make the things, or are they actually aliens masquerading as an art installation? Either way, it looks like the Recycled Robots come in peace.
