This was the World Premier for Unleashed Power
June 6, 2008 - Le Petit Versailles Lower East Side New York

While the piece has evolved since this performance, this performance being that it was the world premier & that it was at Le Petit Versailles is one I'm rather attached to.

Robots: In Our Image
['Temporary office' located at 21 Grand 416 25th St.]
a presentation by Eliot K Daughtry, Executive Director
a performance by killer banshee

Most of the world's robots are industrial, but most of the ones we imagine look like humans. Why do we think about one and use another? How can a robot be a human and also be an artificial intelligence? Why are we comfortable with some robots, but find others creepy? Why are more robots male than female? This presentation will discuss major areas of the Robot Taxonomy Project, an ongoing effort to classify all types of robots and why humans create them.

The Holidaze are coming!!!
Whatever are you going to do for all of the presents you need? Check out the Killer Banshee Studios shop or our Etsy store.
