“It’s nothing like the robot from “Transformers.” It’s more like art meets technology, or humans’ take on technology.” —Kim Young-jin (Artinside CEO)

An exhibition where you can meet “Paul.” Designed by Patrick Tresset, Paul is not only a robot, but an artist that sketch a portrait in 40 minutes. Unlike our expectations for a machine of high-intelligence, the sketch is nowhere close to being hyper-realistic—it looks more like a Cy Twombly, complete with fidgety but expressive lines. Sign up on MMCA’s website by Jul 19 to ask for a portrait from Paul.
