Sarah Petkusis creating ROBOTS
Select a membership level
It's challenging to raise a robot with the necessary qualities to survive on their own once the humans are gone. Thank you for supporting all the crazy and seemingly frivolous research I do. It means the world to me that you see how technology can have value in this world that extends beyond utility.
I will funnel all that I've learned each couple of months into a Seasonal Catalogue : "Robohemian" that will summarize what goals I'm working towards, what hurdles I'm encountering in my active projects, and some personal testimony about the experience of it all. Whatever insight I gain through my mistakes or successes, you will be the first to know, with early access to the publication.
I am an illustrator/engineer who creates kinetic works of art that are "living" versions of the characters I draw! I spend the majority of my time developing behavioral systems which give my robots distinctive personalities and ultimately set them apart from other utilitarian machines.
Creating my mechanical children is my passion and pretty much what I spend all of my time doing. Making progress on them requires buying parts, tools, and often new equipment, which ends up slowing down my progress a lot... because I can only budget so much to do so.
With your support, I'll be able to engage in all the complex areas of play and development I dream of! A supplement to my income would enable me to make larger purchases without hesitating. More progress would be made at a faster pace... thus resulting in more robot babies populating the world.
