Nick Cave makes robotic looking sound suits!

i saw one of these Nick Cave Soundsuits at a museum a few weeks ago.  while not strictly "robotic" they have a decidedly robotic feel to me...  oh, in case you wondered this is not the musician Nick Cave...

Inspiration from Jasper Johns

I've been a fan of Jasper Johns since highschool when I stumbled upon a great book on Jasper's work by Rizzoli.  I was fascinated by the huge numbers, the colors, and the targets.

Here are some pieces that i personally find inspirational.
