Robot Strippers Not Too Enticing


We really aren’t sure what the statement is here.  This is one of the displays at the MuTate London Exhibition. There is tons of stuff to see there, from interactive displays to giant art-piece vehicles. This specific display seems to have garnered the most attention though. we can understand the megaphone headed flailing DJ, but what is with the CCTV camera heads?

  1. this is probably a statement about the ridiculous quantity of cctv cameras and public surveillance that has only been allowed by the public because the “terrorist threat” makes them look attractive.

    Hence, robotic cctv camera pole dancers.

  2. This reminds me when I lived in an apartment in CT. It was a historical building so it had to be kept in historical condition. Smokers would prop the doors open with a bit of wood so they wouldn’t have to unlock it, and this damaged the doors. Approved doors for the building were expensive, so the landlord put a notice on everyone’s door that read something like this. “If you see someone propping the door open, report them. If you do not know their apartment number, follow them and get it. There may even be a reward if we can find out who keeps propping the door open!”. I’m sure people tried to find out who it was. I wasn’t a smoker, but with that type of thing going on, I couldn’t help but feel like everyone I ran into in the hall might be reporting my actions. Maybe it means that everyone is a tool, or at least could be. Maybe the people who made it felt “watched” even when they are kicking back at the ol’ strip join?

  3. It clearly refers to the proliferation of camera phones and webcams on every laptop we buy, and the orwellian potential they carry. We have been sold the means of our own surveillance by convincing us that it’s sexy.

  4. ive seen alot of mutoid wastes stuff. they tour most of the uk festivals and have some very impresive big scale sculptural robotics, its more anamatronics on a massive scale. Trash city at glasto was superb!

    More impresive is Arcadia they have bulit these midi triggered flame throwing victorian street lamps, they can be sequenced and are very awsome!!!!!!

  5. “we can understand the megaphone headed flailing DJ, but what is with the CCTV camera heads?”

    They are “lookers”!

    -Lookers – informal – a very attractive or seductive looking woman

  6. we are all living in a peepshow with mechanical peeping toms on every street corner. These cameras have been sold to the people with sexed up statistics that present them as crime fighters…even though in reality increased street lighting has more effect in fighting ‘crime’.
