This is one of ten unique robot sculptures, each made up of different hardware components and bearing hand-drawn characteristics by the artist Nam June Paik. Known as the father of video art, Paik was one of Holly Solomon’s favorite artists and the “senior provocateur” of her gallery in its later years.
